Travel back in time from Prehistory to the Middle Ages with objects found during excavations in Faverges and its surroundings. Then you can visit the nearby Romanesque church, architectural heritage of five periods of construction (1st - 19th century).

The Viuz Faverges Archeological Museum consists of three rooms filled with artifacts found locally during tests and formal excavations. These objects, ranging from the commonplace to the extraordinary, illustrate the history of human settlement in the Sources du lac d'Annecy. Polished stone axes, bronze or amber jewellery, coins, pottery, tools as well as a huge gallo-roman cauldron bear witness to this history. The museum is located next to Saint Jean-Baptiste 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 three churches from the VIth, IXth (around 800) and XIth centuries (around 1000). An exceptional and unique whole in Savoie.
