Notes: Château de Germolles, located in the heart of Burgundy, near Beaune and Chalon-sur-Saône, is the best preserved residences of the Dukes of Burgundy. Built in the second half of the fourteenth century, this house testifies to an important page in the region's history. The castle is also one of the rare examples of houses of this type still well preserved in France for the fourteenth century and the first half of the fifteenth century, when most princely palaces from this period have almost entirely disappeared. This remarkable site evokes court life in France at the Renaissance before. Today the castle is widely open to visitors and organizes a cultural October-June season. As historical monuments; The entrance porch is the subject of a classification by order of 12 June 1989; the barn and the floors are subject to registration by order of 12 June 1989.
