AN ACTIVE CULTURAL LIFE

Chalon-sur-Saône is a tourist city that attracts more and more visitors from all over France and abroad.

  • Discover the Denon Museum, the Niepce Museum, Saint Vincent Cathedral, the old neighborhoods of Saint-Laurent Island or the pedestrian area, the ramparts with their royal stronghold, the “tour du Doyenné” ...
  • The Festival of Street Artists ("Chalon dans la Rue"), the “Janvier en Bourgogne” are events recognized by all; the Chalon-Bourgogne orchestra, the Abattoir - Regional Center of European creations -, the Exhibition Center, the “Espace des Arts”, the Conservatory of Music and Dance, as well as the municipal library ...

But this development could not be done without an intense artisanal and industrial activity, a desire of all Chalonnais to continue the economic development of the city in the constant concern to preserve the environment and improve the living environment.
