Regional Archaeological Museum of St-Père

Housed in a former 17C presbytery, the Regional Archaeological Museum contains finds uncovered during excavations carried out at the nearby Fontaines Salées site. Note, in particular, a proto-historic duct intended to channel the mineral springs. Also displayed are 4C Gallo-Roman scales, enamelled-bronze fibulae (clasps or brooches), Merovingian weapons and jewellery from various necropoles in the region. The medieval room contains sculptures from the 12C and 14C, including a statue of St James the Great.
