"MEDIEVAL TOWN OF TOURNUS"
Located at the edge of the Saone, TOURNUS is in the province of Bourgogne.
On Wednesday September 27, 2000 Hans, Wim and I stopped in Tournus on our way to Hans' sister in Lanty, not too far from here. We found the town enchanting and rich in history. The main attraction is the Abbaye Saint Philibert.
I also included with Tournus, the town of Belleville, where we stayed overnight.
Here I am exploring and enjoying the medieval town of Tournus. It really was like stepping back in time.
"ABBAYE SAINT PHILIBERT"
The most significant structure in the town of Tournus is definitely the ABBAYE SAINT PHILIBERT. The present abbey was built mainly in the XIth century.
