Saint Laurent was on a major axis in the 15th century, leading from the fortified centre of Chalon to Dôle and the Germanic Empire. To access the island, travellers crossed the Saint Laurent bridge, which was under construction at the time. They reached the "grande rue Saint Laurent" (today's "rue de Strasbourg") which, very early on, housed inns, where those who arrived after the city gates had closed waited for the morning to enter.
A priory with a church and adjoining cemetery existed at the time, along with a parliament, which handed down rulings concerning the "oûtre Saône" (the County); coins were also minted there from the 13th century.
