Palace of the Dukes Reviews
The power of the former Dukes of Burgundy is evident from the palace, part is now city hall and another the excellent Musée des Beaux-Arts. more »
Lors d'une promenade découverte nous sommes tombés sur cette très belle place avec ces monuments historiques très bien rénovés, calme et verdoyant. more »During a walk of discovery we came across this beautiful square with these historical monuments very well renovated, quiet and green.
Palace turned into a museum. There were a lot of amazing pieces of artwork and artifacts. The tombs were especially beguiling in their intricacies and detailing. I am continually awed by the workmanship and craftsmanship. I can barely write cursive anymore and couldn’t imagine wielding a carving tool to chisel out lace and filigree. I will stick to tapping on a keyboard and come back here to see the mastery of yesterday’s.
Absolutely amazing after its 10 year refurbishment programme, an absolute pleasure to visit, staff really helpful and relevant to the collection gifts in the shop.
