Synonymous with fine wine, elegant cuisine, and good living, Burgundy is also a land of outstanding architecture, from Neolithic menhirs to gothic churches. More than 30 villages are surveyed here—pictured in hundreds of color photos—including quiet Chablis, source of the celebrated white wine; Fontenay, home to the Cistercian abbey that has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Couches, where Louis X's 14th-century château is as striking as ever; and modest Champallement, a village founded two millennia ago that remains unspoiled. Here too are an overview of Burgundy's food, Romanesque architecture, and the region's distinctively patterned roofs.
