    Another medieval village perched on a promontory. Castle, hall and church with frescoes, all of the 12th century.

    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.
