"Capital of Burgundy" Top 5 Page for this destination Dijon by PierreZA

Dijon Travel Guide: 186 reviews and 445 photos

Dijon is the capital of Burgundy. A city not just known for mustard, but also for great architecture, food and wine. First impression as one arrives at the station, Dijon seems to be a modern city, but as you enter the centre, the medieval origins become apparent. Dijon has a large number of churches and cathedrals, including St. Bénigne, Notre-Dame, St. Étienne, and St. Michel.
It might not have the charm of the smaller Beaune, but definitely worth a visit. It does have a rich history, dating back many hundreds of years.
