Heritage Saturdays: discovery of the Oppidum de la Courtine

Location : Musée archéologique Bottin Layet
  • Les samedis du patrimoine l'Oppidum de la Courtine
Accompanied by an agent from the Culture and Heritage Department, you'll visit the Bottin-Layet archaeological museum, then explore the Celto-Ligurian oppidum of La Courtine and the medieval rampart on a beautiful hike. Watch out for the challenging route!
Building on the success of the European Heritage Days over the past 20 years, Ollioules' culture and heritage department organizes discovery and interpretation tours of its heritage throughout the year.

The first of these is a peri-urban hike from the town center, via the GR 51, to the Celto-Ligurian oppidum of La Courtine, where the objects on display in the museum were discovered. The route combines sport and archaeology, and offers exceptional views. A picnic lunch will complete the pleasures of fresh air, history and conviviality. (Caution: steep gradient, not accessible for PRM)
From 10/02 to 10/12/2024, daily at 8.30 am.
