More information

The archaeological museum traces the history of local human occupation from Prehistory to the Middle Ages. It exhibits the archaeological furniture uncovered during the excavations carried out in Soyons and the surrounding area: the extraordinary richness of the subsoil of Soyons attests to the occupation of man from Prehistory with Neanderthal man to the Middle Ages!
A visit to the caves invites us to a journey to the heart of Prehistory and to the underground world with a splendid network of stalactites and stalagmites. A botanical trail will lead you to the cave porch.
