Semur-en-Auxois Tourist

Burgundy is an inland region of east-central France, located to the south-east of Paris. Noted for its rich history, Burgundy is probably most famous for its wines.  From north to south, the most famous and recognizable wines of the region grow on carefully exposed soils: Chablis, Côteaux de l’Auxerrois, Côte-de-Nuits, Côte-de-Beaune, Hautes-Côtes, Côtes Chalonnaise et Mâconnais, and of course Pouilly-sur-Loire.  The region has a rich architectural inheritance of remarkable buildings, castles, and Roman churches. Its vineyards are some of the most prestigious in the world, and its cuisine is also famous. Burgundy also offers natural beauty, with lakes and forests, and plenty of opportunities for fishing, walking or riding. The Nievre department holds a vast area of wild countryside ideal both for sport and cultural activities. The visitor will find lands with different tastes to discover, and gentle landscapes with the river Loire and hillsides covered with vineyards.  This location has been recognized and published by the “New York Times” as one of the “52 Places to Go in 2015.”
