    Beaune Things to Do

    The Hôtel-Dieu de Beaune is also referred to as the Hospices of Beaune and was founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, chancellor of Burgundy, as a hospital for the poor. We actually missed it on our first trip to Beaune. The outside looks pretty plain and almost like a museum or church, gothic but not exciting. On our second trip, we walked down an...

Interior is interesting, it is all done in a theme of cows' life. Fun! And what is also important the food is not expensive. MIND: the restaurant is...

    What is left of the city walls date back to the 3rd century when regular invasions by the Germanic civilisations from Gaul occurred.Saint-Germain was a man of faith and a clever one. It was he who had buildings built which soon surrounded the town forming a "saintly wall" in the St. Etienne District. In this area residences with small gardens were...

There is a commemorative plaque (1929) of her first visit on the wall of the presbytery and a...

    Taizé Things to Do

    When entering the community you can see a very interesting plate on the wall, showing a nativity scene. But instead of the usual ox or donkey, here you can see an elephant and a giraffe. The giraffe is looking very closely at the scene, the long neck can be seen in the background of the sheperds. There is another animal which I think looks like a...

    Taizé Favorites

    Before Taizé became known as the community, it was and still is the name of the small village just below . The people in this village very much cherish their privacy and ask to be left alone.

    The thing that caught my eye was actually the roundabout which was one of the most attractive I came across and that's saying something because some of the roundabouts in France were wonderful. More power to whoever thinks them up I say.

  • A Rude interruption

    Auxonne Things to Do

    In 1840-1841, a needle barrier (200 m) was built on the Saône in Auxonne. The barrier allows the regulation of the flow on the river in order to maintain navigation nearly all the year. However, these days the needle barriers are obsolete and not easy to handle; ten of them were recently replaced on the Saône with modern valve barriers. The Auxonne...

    Avallon Things to Do

    In the heart of the ancient city of Avallon is where I came across the very old Saint-Lazare church. The church of Our Lady, founded in 846 and built inside the castle of the Dukes of Burgundy Castle, received from Henry the Great, Grand Duke of Burgundy a relic of Saint Lazarus. Early 1106, the church was dedicated to Saint-Lazare by Pope Paschal...

    Vézelay Things to Do

    The wonderful church at Vezelay is not a cathedral which must have a bishop's chair. It is a basilica . . . a fine point for such a magnificent church. After Chartres, this is my favorite church in the entire world. It is not as ornate as, for instance, most Bavarian churches, but the very austerity is what I love about it. When you step inside,...

    Semur-en-Auxois Things to Do

    The Pont Joly, built in 1779, is an arched bridge which I think offers the best overall view of Semur-en-Auxois. It spans the Armançon river at the foot of the keep which once controlled the narrow isthmus linking the pink cliff, where the city was founded. It wasn't until we were leaving Semur by car that we came across this bridge. Luckily, we...

Built of mellow stone, the local inhabitants now take great pride in the preservation and...

    Flavigny-sur-Ozerain Things to Do

    All around Flavigny there are little tags to let you know what century many of the buildings date back to; something I found of interest. It means you don't have to wonder how old they are, something that fascinates people like me from a country where there is no architecture remotely close to the age of the buildings shown here.There's also street...

  • The crypt

    Flavigny-sur-Ozerain Things to Do

    The crypt is adjacent to where you buy the aniseed and is worth a quick look though, for me, sadly the captions are only in French. Still, some of the capitals are unmistakeably old and their are some Corinthian style columns surrounding a small altar that evoke times past.
