The treasures of the Côte d'Or

Known in the Middle Ages as the city of a hundred steeples thanks to the many churches that decorate it, Dijon, the capital of Burgundy, is first and foremost famous for its crème de cassis and its mustard, but it is also admired for its built heritage, composed of typical timber-framed houses and magnificent monuments. Housed in the sumptuous Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy, Dijon's Museum of Fine Arts is one of the most grandiose in France. More than 130,000 works of art are housed here, from antiquity to the present day. The immense hall of the palace, in flamboyant gothic style, hides the magnificent tombs of the first two Dukes of Burgundy, a jewel!

Beaune has always been the centre of the Burgundy wine trade, but it is also a town of art and history, and is full of architectural treasures. Starting with the Hôtel-Dieu, this famous monument with coloured tiles has become a museum of the history of medicine. The Hôtel des Ducs de Bourgogne, also classified as a historical monument, is a former ducal palace which has now become the Burgundy Wine Museum, where you can learn all you need to know about the history and production of the famous nectar. The collegiate church of Notre-Dame is another building not to be missed, one of the last great Romanesque churches in Burgundy. Finally, you must discover the Lumières à Beaune during the whole summer, projections on the greatest monuments of the city, magnificent!

Wild and hilly, the Morvan Regional Nature Park extends over the four departments of Burgundy. It is the ideal place for sport and nature lovers. It is home to several lakes surrounded by greenery on which water sports can be practised. There are also large forests bordered by numerous paths, a paradise for hikers.
