Plateau de Gergovie

with a museum dedicated to a famed Gaulish victory

A splendid natural belvedere, perched at 744m in altitude, the Gergovie Plateau south of the city of Clermont-Ferrand is thought to have been the site of a famed victory of the Gauls, led by local tribal leader Vercingetorix, over the mighty Julius Caesar. Thanks to an educational trail outside, combined with a visit to the Musée Archéologique de la Bataille, relive, on the spot, the Gallic Wars and the Battle of Gergovia of 52BC.
