Discover Bibracte et le Mont Beuvray France

A remarkable natural site located on Mont Beuvray in the Morvan massif, Bibracte is both a Celtic museum of civilisation and an important research centre. In the 2nd century BC, Bibracte was the capital of the Aedui and at its peak was home to more than 10,000 Gauls. This is where, in 52 BC, Vercingetorix was proclaimed head of the Gaulish coalition.
Now an archaeological park, Mont Beuvray (which boasts the 'Great Site of France' label) offers the opportunity to discover how the Gauls lived before their terrible defeat at Alesia. The permanent exhibition with its new itinerary presents the perfect setting for discovering the Celtic civilisation and learning about the latest archaeological discoveries.
With excavation sites in the middle of the temporary exhibition, anyone can become an archaeologist for a summer during the summer workshops of Bibracte. In the spring, visitors can take part in an experimental archaeological internship based on Gallic cuisine.
For those looking for something a little more active, a trail suitable for hiking, horse-riding and mountain biking follows in the path of the Gallic army, for 75 mi from Bibracte to Alesia.

 Both an archaeological centre and an exhibition site, Bibracte is open all year long. To really learn everything about the site, we highly recommend a guided visit. School visits can also be organised, following themes like discovery visits, educational visits, and heritage learning.

 - From 13 March to 14 November, from 10:00am to 6:00pm
