Burgundy

Burgundy (Bourgogne) is a peaceful rural region at the heart of France, which has a rich and unique history. The Dijon-based duchy ran Burgundy for 600 years until 1477, when the region was jealously snatched by the kingdom of France. There is evidence of the duchy's wealth and power everywhere, such as the many beautiful chateaux and lovely towns and villages.

Burgundy was also a place of important religious and spiritual influence. There are two great abbeys at Vezelay and Fontenay and the ruins of a monastery at Cluny where the abbots' influence was second only to the pope's. This monastic presence meant that during the Middle Ages Burgundy was a great church-building region.
