Housed in a Moorish residence built in the nineteenth century, the Léon-Alègre Museum offers a rich local archaeology collection and numerous old drawings of the region.
A local archaeology collection
A wide range of successive civilisations have occupied this region that opens onto the Rhone Valley. Visitors can follow the local history from the beginning of the Iron Age to the end of Ancient Rome by tracing the remains on display in the Museum. They evoke the native cultural and trade links with the Greeks from Marseille and the various aspects of the Gallo-Roman civilisation such as burial rites, rural life, particularly the birth and development of the vineyards of the Cote du Rhone reion. The remains from these archaeological excavations of the oppidum (refuge) Saint Vincent de Gaujac bear witness to urban life during that period.
The Léon Alègre collection
Several depictions of ancient Bagnols-sur Cèze as well as a beautiful series of drawings of some surrounding villages by Léon Alègre (1813-1884) a local scholar and founder of the museum, completes this rich local collection
