•  Everyone knows the Hospices de Beaune. Remember, "La Grande Vadrouille" ("The Great Stroll"; "Don't Look Now... We're Being Shot At!" :

    Beaune (eng)

    Mother Superior: You like everything that is good?
    Sir Reginald: (Nods).
    Mother Superior: This is very bad!

    Mother Superior: Tell thirty-three ... thirty-three ... thirty-three. Well! (in french)
    Sir Reginald: Thirty-three, thirty-three, thirty-three [...]. (in english)
    Mother Superior: I see a cure, immediate change of scenery! [...] Tell me my friend, it will still monitor me this liver.

    If you do not see, review the film.

    The Hotel-Dieu was a hospital / nursing home until very recently. Its use as explained in Fontenay the excellent condition of the premises.

    The building dates from the 15th century Gothic and there are a lot of details flamingos. Burgundy then went to the flat Belgian country .

    Glazed tile roofs are obviously very famous, but it's actually a cover cheap compared to the slate roof that covers the chapel / hospital.

    That's it? Remember the movie

     Polyptych of the Last Judgment from the 15th century to a Flemish master. The work was cut in the direction of the slice and it allows us to see both sides simultaneously. The artist was a specialist in miniature and therefore is a work of great magnitude with infinite detail and accuracy

    Beaune is not the Hôtel-Dieu. Though. Nice hotels to discover.

    Notre-Dame College is an interesting example of the novel Burgundian.

    In the heart there are tapestries from the 15th century recounting the life of the Virgin. In very good condition.

    Tournus

    After the campaign, we have joined the small town of Tournus to visit the Abbey of Saint-Philibert. It also dates back to thousand. This is probably the oldest of Burgundy still in very good condition. Everything is a bit massive, but the building is huge and therefore weight. Well above the narthex, chapel (St. Michael) is impressive for its size.
