Find the not to be missed sights of Dijon
The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon: a renovated palace rich in works of art. From your Campanile hotel Dijon Centre Gare, head to the historic center. You’ll soon discover the sumptuous Palace of the Dukes and Estates of Burgundy, home to the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon. Located in the eastern wing of the building, the museum succeeded the Ecole de Dessin, which was free and open to all, created by François Devosges in 1767. A few years later, in 1799, the Estates of Burgundy decided to open a museum so that the students could draw inspiration from the models. It is thus one of the oldest museums in France. It is only the only one, with the Louvre, to be located in a royal palace. Soak up history by entering the grand hall of the hôtel Philippe le Bon, where the tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy can be found. The Gallery of Bellegarde, the ducal kitchens and the Tower of Bar are among the other significant historic spaces. You will note that the Salle des Statues and the Salon Condé were decorated by the students of the former art school. In addition to buildings and decors, the museum is characterized by the richness and range of its collections. You’ll go on a journey across borders and through time, from ancient Egypt to the 21st century and through the medieval era.
Immerse yourself in history at the Palace of the Dukes and Estates of Burgundy. Located in the heart of Dijon, the Palace of the Dukes and Estates of Burgundy is worth the visit. From your Campanile hotel Dijon Centre Gare, head toward the historic pedestrian center to admire this monument that changed over the centuries. First erected as a rampart against Barbarian invasions, it was rebuilt in 1366 by the first duke of Valois, Philippe le Hardi. The palace served as the ducal residence, before becoming the seat of the governor of the assembly representing the province under the former regime. Work on the palace started in 1681 and was staggered over more than a century. Several architects participated in its construction, including the royal architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart. The Philippe le Bon Tower, preserved in the center of this construction, remains the symbol of power over the city. The palace is now home to the City Hall and the Musée des Beaux-Arts, which has some 137,000 works of art. Paintings, sculptures, furniture and tableware are kept in this palace from the Middle Ages. It is one of the oldest museums in France. Don’t miss the magnificent hall that houses the tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy. It’s a good introduction to the history of the region, especially the history of the dukes with evocative names: Philippe le Hardi, Jean sans Peur, Charles le Téméraire, etc.
