City of Dukes, International City of Gastronomy and Wine, City and Country of Art and History and doubly registered with the world heritage: within the framework of the inscription of the climats of Burgundy in July 2015 and for the gastronomic french meal as well as the cities of Tours, Rungis and Lyon...

There are many ways to discover the city, from the most classic to the most... wacky.

 

Here are some ideas that can be combined endlessly. But we can invent others together. If you want...

In the heart of the Dukes capital

When discovering Dijon for the first time, there is no need to go all over the historic center, 92 (227 acres) of whose 97 hectares (240 acres) are protected as remarkable heritage sites...

Behind the Dukes' Palace, in the heart of the still-active shopping center, almost the entire history of the city is revealed. There is so much to say on a very short route...

Do you know how many links with the city of Paris are possible? How many links with New-York? How many links with US or England?

 

Apart "mustard", what are (all) the other specialties of Dijon? 

 

And the owl, our famous owl about which we hear just about everything but certainly not the truth?

It is a visit that is constantly re-inventing according to you in reality.

Saint-Benigne Cathedrale

This visit takes you to the discovery of St Bénigne cathedral and its 11th century Romanesque rotunda.

The story begins in the 6th century AD. Here extends the large cemetery to the west of the castrum (the oldest Dijon). And strange things are happening in the cemetery...

Bishop Gregory of Langres learns that a crowd of people come around a sarcophagus, and this, day and night and that miracles frequently occur. 

Worried that these prodigies could be the work of the devil Bishop Gregory  forbade its veneration.

The night after, the person buried in this tomb appeared to him in his sleep and, on his advice, Bishop Gregory no longer forbade pilgrims to enter his tomb.

Dijon to savor

Why not talking about gastronomy?

An excellent pretext to discover the city in a different way. Make the buildings reflect their history, but also take advantage of certain occasions to introduce your taste buds to the specialties of Dijon and Burgundy.

 

What could be better than to take advantage of the market day to talk about Dijon's specialties, Burgundian gastronomy and the splendor of the banquets of the Dukes of Burgundy? Good idea anyway as the market is held four days a week. 

 

You think you know everything about gingerbread, mustard and crème de cassis? Want to bet?
