The appellation

Encircled by its ramparts and bastions like a cask by its staves, Beaune is, in the words of the architect Viollet-le-Duc, the only town in the world where you actually want to fall ill! The Hôtel-Dieu, built in the middle of the 15th century, is the fruit of a love story between Burgundy and Flanders, in the flamboyant days of the Great Dukes.
