Things to do: museums
Flavigny-sur-Ozerain is a commune in the Côte-d'Or department in the region of Burgundy in eastern France.The village was awarded membership in Les Plus Beaux Villages de France ("France's most beautiful villages").GeographyThe medieval village of Flavigny is situated on a rocky spur, surrounded by three streams: the Ozerain, the Recluse and the Verpant.HistoryThe first written mention of the village of Flavigny was in the Latin form of its name, Flaviniacum, which appears in the cartulary of the Benedictine abbey founded on the site by a certain Widerard in 719. In the mid-9th century, in response to the increasing frequency of Viking raids, the relics of Saint Reine were removed from the nearby town of Alise to Flavigny in the hopes that they could be better protected in a more fortified setting. The relics remain in Flavigny to this day, although they travel back to Alise every fall for the celebration of the saint's feast day in early September.The town was prosperous during the Middle Ages, catering to large numbers of pilgrims, both those who came to visit the relics of Saint Reine and those on their way to Santiago de Compostela. By the 10th century, the abbey had grown into a town, with a parish church dedicated to St. Genest in addition to the abbey church . During the 12th and 13th centuries, extensive fortifications were raised around the town; large portions of these walls still surround the village to this day, including the Porte du Val, and the 15th century Porte du Bourg with its statue of the Virgin. Despite these fortifications, Flavigny was occupied by the English during the Hundred Years' War.
