In Dijon for a morning walking tour of the city. We had free time at lunchtime. We arrived before 10am, and had to leave by 2pm that day. This courtyard area is outside the entrance to the museum and is called the Cour de Bar. We initially had to be split into two groups (as was too many of us). Once inside we had to put our bags in a trolley (we would retrieve them when we left the museum). During out guided walking tour, we were taken to the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon. Which is under going restoration until 2019. It is within the Palais des Ducs et des États de Bourgogne. The palace is also home to the Hôtel de Ville de Dijon. Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy The palace of the dukes and states of Burgundy in Dijon in the Côte-d'Or is an architectural ensemble with several intertwined parts: the oldest is the 14th and 15th century ducal palace, in Gothic style , And the two towers: the tower of the terrace, or Philippe le Bon tower and the tower of Bar. Most of the buildings visible today, however, were built in the 17th and especially the 18th centuries , in a classical style, with the design of the royal square, today Place de la Libération . Finally, the facade of the Museum of Fine Arts, on the Place de la Sainte-Chapelle, was erected in the 19th century on the site of the Sainte-Chapelle de Dijon destroyed in 1802 . This ensemble, in a remarkable state of conservation, testifies to almost a millennium of political life in Dijon. The Palace was the seat of the sovereigns of the Burgundian State , the Dukes of Burgundy . Classified as historic monuments by the list of 1862 and by decree of 1926, it now houses the town hall of Dijon and the museum of fine arts of Dijon .
