Beaune is known throughout the world for its wines and its Hospices, particularly
the remarkable Hôtel-Dieu commissioned by Chancellor Nicolas Rolin and his
wife Guigone de Salins, but it is easy to forget that the town has an exceptional
range of other sites to entice the visitor.
Discover the Collégiale Notre-Dame and its Cluniac inspired architecture, the Parc
de la Bouzaise, the Fallot mustard factory, baroque chapels, classical churches,
extensive ramparts, an imposing castle, pretty squares, commemorative statues,
ancient wine cellars, a soaring clock tower and a monumental gate.
This clearly written and richly illustrated guide, based on the best historical research, will be your faithful companion as you head out to discover the capital of
wine, or leaf through it at home to relive the memory of beautiful Beaune.
