Briord was in Gallo-Roman times an important city on the edge of the road which, following the river, linked Lyon to the Alps.
The Archaeological Museum of Briord brings together some of its remains.

The Briarettes aqueduct, listed as a Historic Monument since 1904, is Briord's most remarkable ancient work. A unique experience to cross the almost 400 m of underground galleries that still exist with a flashlight. Remember to put on boots!

Typical Bugiste houses and farmhouses have been preserved in the village and in the hamlets. Some of the houses along the port have a particular cachet. The village of Briord also has a river port of about thirty rings.
