The city was a major center for anything that related to Gothic and early Renaissance arts, be it music, sculpture or painting so there are definitely many things to see around town.
There are a couple of landmarks that you will surely not want to miss while in Dijon, the first of which being an owl; the sculpted owl, or la chouette, can be found on the side of the Notre-Dame church, it’s been there since the 15th century and legend says that touching it with your left hand will grant you the wish that you are making at that time.
Another landmark is the Place Francois Rude, this is a central square lined by beautiful houses built in a traditional style, a fountain, an old carousel and plenty of cafes and bars; as you might gather this is a rather popular gathering spot during the warm summer months.
The Ducal Palace is another thing that you won’t want to miss as it is a very beautiful building which houses a museum exhibiting treasures and art that used to belong to the Dukes of Burgundy which were great patrons of the arts.
These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while in Dijon so make sure you employ our Dijon car hire services in order to enjoy your trip to its maximum potential.
