Tips from locals
Beautiful restored Renaissance castle with decorated rooms, impressive formal garden and park. In summer season exhibitions in the outer buildings.
An amazing Renaissance palace on the lands of the Dukes of Burgundy. The biggest collection of Renaissance murals in France make Ancy-le-Franc a direct contender of the Fontainebleau chateau.

“The Fosse Dionne is a karst spring located in downtown Tonnerre. It is remarkable because of its outflow (reportedly at least 100 litres per second on average). Its presence is at the center of the creation story of Tonnerre. An elaborate wash basin was built around the spring in the 18th century. A small room next to the Fosse shows a map of the underground caves, in which a lot of divers lost their life trying to explore it.”
