With its 150,000-year history, the Soyons site is a major witness to the great stages of human adventure.

Since the late 19th century, excavations in the village of Soyons brought to light evidences of human occupation from the prehistoric times to the Middle Age.
On the archaeological site, two different limestone caves can be discovered with a guided tour : one cave confirms the presence of Neandertal and also cave bears, lions and hyenas. The second cave reveals an extraordinary network of concretions (stalactites, stalagmites, draperies …).
Your tour finishes at the archaeological museum where you can admire objects found during excavations in the village. The collection demonstrates the history of the settling of Soyons from Prehistory to the Middle Ages.

On a simulated dig site, your children can participate in an archaeological excavation.
