Autun and the people of Autun are simply wonderful. To be able to see these pieces of history is an honor. If you expect fancy and spectacular this area is not for you. Autun and the surrounding area (Beaune, Lyon and Sully(love the Chateaux)) is...More

We had parked our car at Porte d'Arroux and did a short walk (10-15 min) to the temple. The height of it is really impressive. In december, the grass around it is very muddy, so I recommend to were hiking boots.

If you are in the Autun area, this is an easy, and short, visit. It is off the main road coming in from the south, and visible from the road. It is signposted as well. Basically it is the remains of a large tower/temple intended...More
