Petit Futé's opinion on BIBRACTE
A magnificent archaeological site which also houses a rich museum on Gallic life, built on the slopes of Mount Beuvray.
Located in the heart of Burgundy, Bibracte is a wonderful natural and archaeological site that has been awarded the Grand Site de France label since 2007. In the heart of the extraordinary Morvan Regional Nature Park, the site invites you to discover the richness of the Celtic civilization of the 2nd and 1st centuries B.C. Indeed, the ancient city of Bibracte was built on Mount Beuvray by the Gallic people of the Eduens. It was also at Bibracte that Vercingetorix organized the first general uprising of the Gallic tribes against the Romans in 52 BC. Covering nearly 200 hectares, this magnificent site offers visitors a wide range of activities combining the discovery of majestic nature with scientific and historical knowledge. So, put on your walking shoes and set off for 3 hours in the company of a guide who knows all about the history of Bibracte, the work of archaeologists, the evolution of the landscape and the wild animals of the area. The Bibracte site also houses a museum where you can go back in time in the footsteps of the archaeologists, discovering the daily life of the inhabitants of Bibracte and of Celtic Europe in the process of urbanisation. At Bibracte you will find fascinating archaeological finds as well as models and videos. These methods of cultural mediation allow visitors to be literally projected into history and to imagine the daily life of our ancestors. Enjoy a unique experience by tasting the cuisine of our ancestors! Treat yourself to a Gallic day with your family. After discovering the ingredients of Gallic cuisine, tasting the cereals and fresh herbs used in Gallic dishes and eating from Celtic crockery, you will explore the archaeological site in the company of a guide who will tell you all about the history of the site and more! Nature is also worth a visit: with nearly 1,000 hectares of forest, Bibracte offers breathtaking panoramas on memorable walking routes. Also, in good weather, you can even see Mont Blanc! Bibracte is an exceptional natural and archaeological site where you can experience history in the open air! Don't miss this year's exhibition "La voix, le loin" (The voice, the distance): on the outskirts of the museum and on Mount Beuvray, one hundred poems that Jean-Luc Raharimanana has chosen to resonate with his travel photos along a route through the forest. Finally, download the new "La Boussole" application to accompany you in your discovery of Bibracte!
