It has recently been raised to the rank of 'basilica'; and has been constantly altered and embellished since 1120. It contains both Romanesque and Gothic elements, with a huge vestibule and high nave.
Additional to the fabulous architecture are the long tapestries hanging at eye level, telling Mary's story; woven in Flanders in 1500!

    Nice page on Beaune. We will be going in May and I'm looking forward to seeing this quaint town.
