Gisacum was a Gallo-Roman religious sanctuary in the 1st Century AD. It has been excavated with increasing care since the early 19th century. The remains of a Roman theatre, a palace, baths and an aqueduct have been discovered, as well as various relics, notably the bronze statue of Jupiter Stator (the king of the gods in ancient Roman mythology), which are now deposited in the museum of Évreux. You can see this vast sanctuary from 2000 years ago that had a unique plan: monumental public structures isolated at the center were surrounded by a vast empty space, with the urban habitations around a hexagonal periphery, almost 3.5 miles (5.6 km) in circumference.
