Trip Planner: Europe / France / Bourgogne-Franche-Comte / Saone-et-Loire / Tournus / Abbaye Saint-Philibert
Known as the heart of the town, Abbaye Saint-Philibert is a fortress-style Benedictine Abbey established in 950 A.D. The building boasts some of the first Romanesque building styles in Burgundy, from when they began to use Romanesque and early Gothic styles at the beginning of the 11th century. In the 17th century, the 33m (108 ft) long refectory doubles as an early indoor tennis court.
