On my way back from Eastern Europe in July, I visited some friends who are touring the Burgundy region canals between Paris and Lyon. They were in Dijon and so I got to go on the "Owl Tour", the Owl being the symbol of the town, and is a little circuit around many of the sights to be had. No deep and meaningful analysis, just some views of a lovely little town in central France.
A nice view of the Cathedral of St Benigne from near the main railway station.
I especially love the colourful tiled rooftops around here. this is in Plombieres-Les-Dijon.
Another view of the Cathedral St Benigne, this time of its roof.
A couple of views of Rue Verrierie, a street fulll of well-preserved houses from the Middle Ages.
L'hotel de Vogue. A 17th century town house.
Maison Milliere. Built in 1483
Maison Millard from 1560.
finally, two more decorated tiled roofs, from Plombiers-Les-Dijon
