Palais des ducs et des États de Bourgogne
Behind the beautiful classical order of its façade, the Palace of the Dukes and States of Burgundy reveals several centuries of history. The former ducal residence (to the east), rebuilt in the 15th century under Philip the Good, became the residence of the king and the governor of the province from the 16th century, and is now joined to the palace of the States of Burgundy built from the 17th century onwards (to the west). Jules Hardouin-Mansart, the king's first architect, was commissioned to design the new Place Royale (Place de la Libération). He unified the facade of this group of buildings and created the palace as we know it today, centred on a main courtyard and the square, and framed by two courtyards: Cour de Flore to the west and Cour de Bar to the east. The Philippe le Bon tower, preserved in the centre of this complex, remains the symbol of power over the city.
The palace now houses the town hall, the fine arts museum, the municipal archives and the tourist office
The ducal kitchens and the guards' room, the former grand reception room of the dukes, can be seen in the museum. The climb to the Philippe le Bon tower is organised by the tourist office, which also allows access to the chapel of the Elected Officials (18th century). Access to the rooms of the Palais des États (Gabriel staircase, Salle des États and Salle de Flore) is via the Cour de Flore during the cultural events that take place there or via the guided tours offered by the tourist office.

HĂ´tel-Dieu - Hospices de Beaune
Owned by the Hospices Civils de Beaune, this remarkably well-preserved heritage site was founded in 1443 thanks to the patronage of Nicolas Rolin, Chancellor to the Duke of Burgundy, and his last wife Guigone de Salins. Conceived as a "palace for the poor", the charitable institution - entrusted by the donors to the good care of the Dames Hospitalières - remained in operation until the early 1970s, before a modern hospital, better suited to developments in healthcare, was built on the outskirts of Beaune's historic centre.

Known for its polychrome glazed tile roofs, the Hôtel-Dieu is one of the few remaining examples of late medieval civil architecture, and a major place of remembrance of hospital history. As you wander through the rooms, the centuries pass by, from the 15th to the 21st century: Let yourself be surprised by the ambience of the Salle des Pôvres or the Salle Saint-Hugues, discover the collection of furniture and tapestries, the medical instruments and the evolution of care practices; also take the time to observe each of the facades of the Cour d'Honneur, to contemplate the polyptych of the Last Judgement by Rogier van der Weyden or to sit down in the courtyard of the founders recently planted with the garden "Échos Polychromes", a contemporary tribute to the garden of the simple...

Throughout 2024, we invite you to discover or rediscover the HĂ´tel-Dieu, whose programme of events on the theme of CHARITY is a tribute to all those who have worked and continue to work with the sick, from the hospital sisters to our carers, from donors to benefactors. Exhibitions, workshops, shows and concerts invite you to share in the history of this centuries-old building.

Lyon 2e Arrondissement > Vienne
Cheese and wine tour in the nothern part of cote du rhone
Close to Lyon, here you can explore a world of authenticity and sharing. You will go through Ampuis, a charming village and the birthplace of CĂ´te-RĂ´tie wine, with the River Rhone on one side and the vineyards on the other. In the village of Condrieu, you will climb (in a minibus) the steep slopes of one of the oldest winemaking areas in France. Little winding roads will take you up to a typical farm in the Pilat Regional Nature Park for an encounter with a goat's cheese maker. This dedicated farmer will show you round his farm (if his work is not too hectic, of course) and will introduce you to the famous Rigotte de Condrieu, a small goat's cheese with a subtle and delicate taste! You can then set off with a few delicious cheeses to taste in a winery next door.

During a quick tour of the vineyards, you can get to know the work of a winemaker, with everything done by hand, from pruning to harvesting. The grapevines grow on steep hillsides with excellent exposure to sunshine and rich and diverse natural conditions. You will really only appreciate all the aromatic richness of these great wines during a tasting. The greatest wines in our region, CĂ´te-RĂ´tie, Condrieu and Saint-Joseph, are a real treat for the taste buds!
