Fruit of a rich terrain combined with ancestral know-how, Burgundy stone is intrinsincally linked to the cultural and historical heritage of the region. Since the beginning of time, stone has been exploited by Man for construction and protection. This universal material has sheltered our ancesters rich or poor for centuries. It has left surprising vestiges: palaces, châteaux, farms, noble residences and modest homes, romanesque churches, gothic cathedrales, cistercian abbeys... some artistically adorned, others charming or inspiring for their simplicity. They all contribute to endowing Burgundy in both urban and rural areas with a distinctive cultural identity.
