    Relive history in style at MuséoParc Alésia!

    A place of history and remembrance known to all, the site of Alesia has been part of the national heritage since the famous battle between Caesar and Vercingetorix.

    The Interpretation Centre offers a dynamic insight into the siege of Alesia. Antique objects and facsimiles, dioramas, films, models, multimedia terminals and reproductions of war machines give you the keys to understanding the history of the site. The MuséoParc's programme is designed to be both user-friendly and interactive: themed meetings, educational workshops, historical demonstrations, audio guides with a choice of a "children's" tour with games or an "adult" tour, a games library for children aged 3 to 8, etc. You can plunge right into the heart of the fighting and be amazed by the impressive reconstruction of the Roman fortifications. A life-size immersion!

    Alesia is also... An emblematic statue
    To commemorate the completion and success of research at Alesia, Napoleon III commissioned the sculptor Aimé Millet to build a colossal statue of Vercingetorix. Standing 6.60 metres high, this work in copper plate was erected in 1865. Its 7-metre stone base was designed by the architect Viollet-le-Duc.

    And a Gallo-Roman site that has been open for over 100 years!
    After the defeat of Vercingetorix, the oppidum continued to be occupied. A prosperous Gallo-Roman town developed, thanks in particular to the activities of craftsmen specialising in bronzeworking. It was abandoned in the 5th century. At the time, the population was estimated at a few thousand. All that remains of this ancient town are some heavily excavated remains. These consist of the foundations and buried structures of the monuments and dwellings built over several centuries.
