Info

Prehistoric, roman and medieval artifacts stemming from excavations realized in Faverges can be seen at the Archeological museum. The nearby romanesque church reveals five periods of construction (I st - XIX th century).

The Viuz Faverges Archeological Museum consists of three rooms filled with artfacts found locally during tests and formal excavations. These objects, ranging from the commonplace to the extraordinary, illustrate the history of human settlement in the area. From the stone Age, axes and tools; from the bronze and iron Ages, jewelry, coins, pottery, tools as well as a huge gallo-roman caudron. The museum is located next to the Viuz church, whose Romanesque choir dates back to the 12th Century and houses older foundations of several successive buildings dating back to gallo-roman times as well as early christianity.
