    Examine the Ancient Covered Market

    by hquittner Updated Oct 25, 2008

    The treasure of Nolay is its ancient covered market, still in use. There are weekly markets in it every Monday (which was not the day we visited). It is built of chestnut with sloping roofs that are covered with heavy flat limestone slabs. It was the reason we stopped.

    Go to the Church of St.-Martin Next Door

    by hquittner Written Oct 25, 2008

    The church was built in the 15C upon the base of an old Romanesque one to St.-Sulpice. It had various structural difficulties and changes were made in the 17,18 and 19C. It now has a fine spire and a bell-tower with two figures that strike the hour (we were unsuccessful in photographing this). The interior was not very interesting. Is the statue outside of Lazare Carnot the native Revolutionary hero? It is somewhere in this town).

    Drive Out to the Chateau de la Rochepot

    by hquittner Updated Oct 25, 2008

    La Rochepot is a well restored and maintained castle. It is easily reached by the D973 east from Nolay. We did not have time available for a visit. In fact this picture was taken from the St.-Jean area of Santenay in the valley below. It is quite a view. There is a town of La Rochepot next to the Chateau but nobody has written anything at that site. A write-up by beausoleil as an Off the Beaten Path is under Beaune and she has written of a restaurant in the town under the same location. That is all there is except for the website.
