Site gallo-romain de Sanxay

In the valley of the Vonne, important monumental remains of a Gallo-Roman sanctuary.

Between the 1st and 4th century, Sanxay was an important centre for cures and pilgrimages placed under the protection of two divinities. Set in the verdant valley of the Vonne, the remains of the largest buildings (temples, amphitheatre, thermal baths) located throughout a 19-hectare site make the sanctuary one of the best preserved and most interesting of the monuments belonging to Gallo-Roman times.
