The pleasant, shady town, bathed by the waters of the Seine, lies at the foot of a hill crowned by the ruins of the castle and a jewel of Romanesque art, the church of Saint-Vorles.
Situated on the axis of the natural passage between the north and the south, the town has been a commercial and cultural crossroads since ancient times, as evidenced by the numerous archaeological remains in the area, in particular the famous treasure of the tumulus of the Princess of Vix, which is on display in the Musée du Pays Châtillonnais.
From the Maison Philandrier, a Renaissance building that once housed the famous Vix crater, set off with the Châtillonnais Tourist Office to discover more than 1000 years of history.
Let yourself be charmed by the Douix spring, a haven of peace in the centre of the town, a place of archaeological discoveries and speleological adventures.
Follow in the footsteps of the Dukes of Burgundy and the Bishops of Langres by strolling along the Seine to the remains of the castle: Saint-Bernard will accompany you on the heights of the town.
The church of Saint-Vorles (10th century) will open its doors and reveal its sober Romanesque style. The tomb, the diptych and the crypt of Saint-Bernard are among the highlights of this place.
