Palais des Ducs et des États de Bourgogne

France > Dijon

The Palais des Ducs et des États de Bourgogne (often shortened to the Palais des Ducs) is a well-preserved example of 14th and 15th-century Gothic architecture in the historic centre of Dijon.

If you stand facing the building from Place de la Libération, you'll see two wings attached to the main palace. The left wing is mostly used for offices of the city hall, while the right wing is the site of the Musée des Beaux Arts de Dijon, which features extensive collections of paintings, sculptures and other masterpieces from throughout history. The museum was founded during the Enlightenment in 1787, making it one of the oldest museums in the country.

Visit the Palais and you can also wander through its courtyards and discover the Chapelle des Élus, a quaint chapel tucked away in a corner of the grounds.
