Charolles

(55 reviews from 3 attractions)
Historic Sites Museums
Charolles is a commune in the Saône-et-Loire department in the region of Bourgogne in eastern France.GeographyCharolles is located at the confluence of the Semence and the Arconce rivers,. west-northwest of Mâcon.HistoryCharolles was the capital of Charolais, an old division of France, which from the early 14th century gave the title of count to its possessors. In 1327 the county passed by marriage to the house of Armagnac, and in 1390 it was sold to Philip of Burgundy. After the death of Charles the Bold, who in his youth had borne the title of count of Charolais, it was seized by Louis XI of France, but in 1493 it was ceded by Charles VIII to Maximilian of Austria, the representative of the Burgundian family. Ultimately passing to the Spanish kings, it became for a considerable period an object of dispute between France and Spain, until at length in 1684 it was assigned to the great Condé, a creditor of the king of Spain. It was united to the French crown in 1771.
