Presentation

Saint Vincent Oppidum in Gaujac.
Located on a hill, easily accessible, this site has undergone extensive excavations which have provided understanding on the importance of the oppidum as of 5th century BC.
This fortified stronghold lay at the meeting of three different roads, and benefited from commercial trade between the Mediterranean and the North.
The Gaujac Oppidum (fortified site, means on high ground) is located at the top of Saint Vincent hill (Alt. 270m) and overlooks vast plains where the valleys of the Tave and the Veyre rivers come together. The site has been extensively studied and results show that this was a very big oppidum.
