Larina archeologic site presents the remains of the human occupation in the Isle Crémieu plateau, from Prehistory to the High Middle-Age.
Held since Prehistoric times (Gallic oppidum, the Chuire religious deposit), the Larina archaeological site, at the top of the cliffs overlooking the valley, presents the restored remains of a vast rural estate from the end of Antiquity and the Merovingian period. Farm buildings, accommodation, chapel and necropolis are revealed in a visit, the result of fifteen years of excavations.
Période(s) d'ouvertureAll year round, open every day (independent access all year round during daylight hours).
