This fortified village, called an oppidum, dates from the Celtic period, about 124 BC.

Traces of the rampart 600 metres long can still be seen. Th oppidum was destroyed by fire by the Celts themselves in - 58 BC, before their migration to Gaul.
For the National exhibition Expo 02, a considerable archeological dig was carried out and a part of one gateway was reconstructed as would have been the original.
