With an exceptional architectural heritage ranging from Gothic to Art Deco, the capital of Burgundy is also a gastronomic and wine-growing destination. Former capital of the Dukes of Burgundy, Dijon evokes, of course, mustard, but also blackcurrant and its kir, gingerbread and more generally gougères, fondue and beef bourguignon and many other specialities that are highlighted at its autumn gastronomic fair and throughout the year through its chefs and producers. The Cité de la gastronomie et du vin, inaugurated in 2018, establishes a claimed and justified identity. Other symbols mark the urban landscape: the Porte Guillaume, the triumphal arch of Darcy Square, the Notre-Dame church and its gargoyles or the reproduction of the bear of Pompon in the Darcy garden. The most beautiful Haussmann-style buildings are occupied by the Caisse d'épargne, Galeries Lafayette, the University of Burgundy, Grand Hotel la Cloche, etc. A small jewel in the city centre, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can see the 15th century timber-framed houses on rue Verrerie. Another atmosphere with the marina and its pleasure garden. A cultural jewel, the Musée des Beaux-Arts has occupied the vast Palais des Ducs since 1787. Other visits are necessary to discover the Museum of Burgundian life installed in the cloister of the Bernardines monastery, the Cassissium, the largest space dedicated to blackcurrant, the kite museum or the ancestral gingerbread factory Mulot et Petitjean still in operation.
