During its 2000 year existance Beaune was for a short period the capital of the Dukes of Burgundy, then a busy commercial center for the cloth and wine industries. The town took on a defensive character through the continous fortification of its ramparts and castle whose functions were to protect its interests and inhabitants. In the 18th century Beaune became the center of commerce for Burgundy's fine wines. Today, the visitor finds a charming blend of medieval half timbered houses, the gentle curves of romanesque architecture, rooftops ornamented by weathervanes, fascinating townhouses and the multicolored tiles and lead "lacework " of the Hôtel Dieu within the city walls. Bastions and towers offer a peaceful protection to the region's most prestigous products, and the moat has been transformed into public or private gardens sheltering century old plant collections.
La Bussière-sur-Ouche is one of the most interesting villages along the Burgundy canal. The picturesque old homes along the the canal side of the village area sight to behold. The history and calm of the working abbey is awe-inspiring. The village consists of two very distinct parts, "La Forge" with the canal running through, and on the other side of the Ouche, "La Bussiere", with the 11th century Cistercian abbey.
