Dijon

We had an interesting guide around Dijon.

There is a stone owl set into the corner of Dijon Cathedral and tradition has it that, if you rub it with your left hand and make a wish, your wish will come true. The City fathers' have taken the symbol and used it as a guide for a walking tour. So, hoot, hoot - off we go.


The Well of Moses, Dijon

The Well of Moses was the centre-piece of the cloister of the Carthusian Monastery. The surrounding buildings are now a psychiatric hospital, but you can visit the Well of Moses and the chapel of the monastery. The sculptures are recognised as some of the most impressive work of the end of the Middle Ages and are attributed to Claus Sluter (1395).
