Since 2001 the Clunisian Priory of La Charite-sur-Loire has been one of the biggest restoration sites in Burgundy. In 2003, the Benedictine gardens and St Laurent Church were the first monuments to be restored, and the chapter house and one of the cloister galleries were inaugurated in January 2008. The priory is gradually coming out of the shadows and today it offers a fascinating look at the town and its history. In the high season the priory hosts many shows and concerts, bringing it back to life.

A Unesco World heritage site, the priory is now completely renovated. It is really worth a look not only for the building itself, a marvelous Romanesque Benedictine abbey, but for its fabulous exhibition. La Charite is well known for its antique bookstores, book festivals and...More

Great stopover on our way to Chablis. Picturesque historical town with wonderful bridge and cathedral. You can find here many great boulangeries.

It's just big, very open, meaning the children can nose about without getting into trouble. We're not great history buffs but this held our interest for hours.

We went here on a suggestion from a tour guide, and it's pretty incredible. I think it dates from 1100's? (maybe even older). Takes just a few minutes to see, but it's worth the time to think of the history...
