Exhibition: Les palafittes alpins - un patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO

With this photographic exhibition, the Musée-Château d'Annecy celebrates the 10th anniversary of the inscription of the prehistoric pile dwellings around the Alps on the Unesco World Heritage List and at the same time the presidency by France of the international working group in 2021-2022.

Thirteen very large format photos hung in the courtyard allow you to discover the emblematic sites of France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Slovenia. Aerial and underwater views, photos of archaeological excavations and lake landscapes present unprecedented images of the Alpine palaeoliths, the richness of which you can then discover in the permanent archaeology exhibition rooms.
