Mâcon, a historic town on the edge of Saône

An important communication hub since antiquity under the name Matisco, the city of Mâcon has prospered over the centuries thanks to its strategic position as a border city between the Holy German Empire and the Kingdom of France.

It is now famous for being the birthplace of the poet Lamartine (1790-1869). It is impossible to miss the statue depicting the poet on the edge of Saône and in front of the town hall.

The Ursulines Museum, a must-see in Mâcon and Mâconnais, includes a rich and recent space entirely dedicated to the writer.

The great architectural richness of Mâcon close to the campsite makes this city on the Saône a a must-see destination not to be missed: the 15th century wooden house decorated with snarky sculptures, the apothecary of the Hôtel-Dieu, with its décor unchanged since the 18th century, or the Romanesque Church of St. Peter erected in the heart of the city in the 19th century, bear witness to the city’s long history.

The « Feather Trail », a journey-discovery of Mâcon created in homage to Lamartine, leads walkers from sites to monuments using bronze feathers embedded in the ground.

Some thirty places are to be discovered during this walk that allows you to discover the historical heritage, but also cultural, natural or gastronomic of Mâcon.
