Val-Cenis - Sollières-Sardières

The site is a reference in Alpine archaeology because it has provided many elements for understanding the occupation of the high Alpine valleys by Neolithic and Bronze Age populations.


The museum presents the discoveries made in the Balmes cave overlooking Val Cenis Sollières. The first farmers and stockbreeders of the Neolithic period settled about 5,600 years ago in the Balmes cave overlooking Val Cenis-Sollières. The museum presents all the objects of the daily life of these first mountain dwellers of Haute Maurienne.
The objects and handicrafts on display in the museum plunge the visitor into the daily life of these mountain people, who had a relationship with their environment that went far beyond mere subsistence.
