  • By car, the itinerary is well indicated and on the way, I will say that one is in the heart of the subject because I was able to see the tomb of Jean Gula of the Maquis Socrates died at 17 years for the liberation of Autun on 11/09/1944. The cross of liberation, granite monument of 16 meters high at the initiative of Monseigneur LEBRUN, in recognition of the protection that favored Autun at the time of liberation. I put 3 stars in this activity because:-there is a large parking and the cross is located next to it-this one is in the forest and there are areas for lunch-the view is beautiful on Autun, you can see the Cathedral for example-there are different paths of hikes-one particular point is that there are 4 downhill trails in mountain biking my only regret is that it lacks an orientation table on this site in order to better locate the monuments of the city. There is no explanatory sign on this cross (apart from the MTB track). I don't think Autun is a tourist city so far, except to have a guide to provide you with the explanations. I also remain convinced that there is no flyer on this site either! I haven't seen any!
