Known as the "Romanesque garden" by the monk chronicler of his time, Raoul Glaber, South Burgundy reveals a number of churches and chapels, planted between the vineyards, and adding to the charm of the region's villages. They revolve around the abbeys of Cluny and Tournus, real jewels.

But at the turn of a vineyard or a wood, the eye of the walker will also stop on beautiful fortresses and other castles of the medieval period, well preserved and for the most part open to the public.

Finally, South Burgundy cannot be explored without a visit to the pretty town of Mâcon, the ancient Matisco, witness to two thousand years of history.
