Must-sees

Learn to appreciate your surroundings from a different perspective

Burgundy is a scintillating region thanks to the countless sites that are listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, the elegant châteaus, etc. However, sometimes the talent of the builders can be overshadowed by the calm and elegance of the monuments. Try admiring them from a different angle, listen to the stories, play with the light, and you'll see these majestic yet intimate monuments from a very different perspective.

Brush up on the basics

Your journey back in time continues to the period of the Gauls in Bibracte, a former oppidum that was revived from the ashes thanks to significant work carried out by archaeologists from all over the world, then on to the Renaissance-style château of Ancy-le-Franc. You'll soon know Burgundy like the back of your hand!

A word from someone who is passionate about Burgundy

In Burgundy, you'll soon see that we are fascinated by the Middle Ages! In 1995, a far-fetched project was launched, to build a medieval castle, only using the techniques and materials of that time.

Welcome to Guédelon medieval worksite in Puisaye, a one-of-a-kind place where passionate labourers will be thrilled to share the skills of their professions with you. You can even lend them a hand if you want.

The director of the worksite, Maryline Martin, tells you more about this incredible challenge.
