Places of worship, funerary spaces and divinities in Orléans during antiquity - Guided tour "Ville d'Art et d'Histoire" (City of Art and History)

This service is no longer available. Orléans


As part of the 30th anniversary of the town's archaeology centre
The Gauls and Gallo-Romans of Cenabum left many traces of their beliefs in the town. This visit will be an opportunity to talk about the Gallo-Roman sanctuary of the Fontaine de l'Etuvée, as well as the necropolises and funerary practices of antiquity. The question of the identity of the god considered to be the tutelary deity of the Roman Cenabum will be raised.

The tour will conclude at the Hôtel Cabu, the Orléans Museum of History and Archaeology, with a presentation of the enigmatic Gallo-Roman cult "treasure" at Neuvy-en Sullias.
This tour was organised in partnership with the archaeology department of Orléans City Council and Hôtel Cabu, the city's history and archaeology museum.

This tour is largely based on the "Living, dying and praying in Orléans during Antiquity" tour.
Access to the Hôtel Cabu is not possible for PRMs

Departure point: Cloître Saint-Aignan.
