Welcome to Tournus
Tournus, on the Saône, is known for its 10th- to 12th-century Romanesque abbey church. The city is surrounded by scenic countryside, best viewed along small rural roads such as the D14, D15, D82 and D56, which pass through tiny villages, many with charming churches of their own. The medieval hilltop village of Brancion, with its 12th-century church and château, is a lovely place to wander, while Chardonnay is, as one would expect, surrounded by vineyards. There's a panoramic view from 579m Mont St-Romain, 22km southwest of town.
