GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE REGION

THE HISTORICAL CENTRE
OF BEAUJOLAIS

The historical capital of Beaujeu still retains important artefacts and heritage from the Lords of Beaujeu, who gave their name to the region.

Belleville-sur-Saône was built around the abbey founded in the 12th century and the 18th century hospital, which prided itself on its excellent apothecary.

Villefranche-sur-Saône, built in a strategic location in the Saône, became capital of Beaujolais in the 16th century. Its Notre Dame des Marais church owes its Gothic façade to the generosity of Anne de Beaujeu.

Beaujolais des Pierres Dorées in the south includes villages such as Oingt, Ternand and Theizé. The yellow stone so typical of the region has given it the nickname of “little Tuscany”.

Mâconnais and Clunisois

The pleasant and peaceful town of Mâcon with its riverside cafés is proud to be the birthplace of the 19th century romantic poet Alphonse de Lamartine. Everything here bears his memory.

The Rock of Solutré, a prehistoric hot spot.

Cluny and its Benedictine abbey, whose influence extended into France and Europe from the 10th to the 18th century.

Lyon

Lyon: this former Gallo-Roman capital with 2,000 years of history and UNESCO world heritage listing has a Renaissance district rich with traboules. The wonderful combination of its silk trade history and culinary traditions makes it a must-see destination.

Historical Burgundy

Historical Burgundy: Dijon and Beaune, two cities steeped in a glorious past – the golden age of the Duchy of Burgundy.
