Petit Futé's opinion on GALLO-ROMAN SITE OF SANXAY

Plate millesim 2022

In the Vonne valley, the Gallo-Roman site of Sanxay, occupied from the 1st to the 4th century, was an important agglomeration of the ancient Picton territory, whose prestige is revealed by the remains discovered by Father Camille de La Croix from 1881 to 1883: an important thermal complex, a 6,000 m² sanctuary and a theatre that could hold up to 6,500 spectators. In August, don't miss the incredible Soirées Lyriques organised in the ruins of the Gallo-Roman theatre!

Une belle promenade aménagée permet de découvrir les trois éléments qui ont survécu de ce lieu de cure et de pèlerinage important entre les 1er et 4e siècles. Les archéologues estiment que ce “vicus” (bourg rural) s’étend sur plus de 20 hectares. Sa situation aux frontières de régions d’économies complémentaires sert potentiellement de lieu d'échanges.
Sont présentement mis au jour: (1) un théâtre pouvant accueillir environ 6600 spectateurs (2) un vaste sanctuaire et (3) un complexe thermal. Les vestiges de nombreuses autres constructions ont été fouillés puis réenfouis.
