The city, which was first mentioned by Julius Caesar in his The War of the Gauls, is ideally located on the Via Agrippa. After the establishment of a bishopric in the 5th century, Chalon experienced significant growth and hosted 12 councils between the 5th and the 13th centuries. The city of Chalon, which was repeatedly laid siege to, played an important role during the Wars of Religion.
The city transformed itself into a leading industrial centre in the 19th century, after the foundation of the Chantiers Le Petit Creusot and the creation of numerous workshops producing bricks, tiles, metal and glass objects. Chalon is divided into 29 neighbourhoods.
During your stay in Chalon, you can enjoy a stroll in the Jardin Géo-Botanique, the Saint-Nicolas Rose Garden, the Parc Georges Nouelle and the Square Chabas. You can also walk along the banks of the Saône or take a boat tour of the river.
This garden, which is free and open year round, covers 1.3 hectares. It is home to 600 different species of natural and cultivated plants, and is a very pleasant setting for a walk.
The Saint-Nicolas Rose Garden, which is very popular with locals on sunny days, is a walkway lined with flowers. The park stretches along 5 hectares of the banks of the Saône and offers numerous activities such as walking, relaxing and sports (football, volleyball, baseball), which have designated spaces that are well removed from the footpaths. The numerous wooded areas are a peaceful setting, and visitors enjoy admiring the 600 varieties of roses on display.
More commonly known as the “Deer Park”, this is a convivial space that’s very popular with children, who can observe the ducks, chickens and sheep on the site. This garden is the perfect place for a picnic or a walk in the park.
