Flavigny is well worth a visit: discover its gates and fortifications, the architecture of its small businesses (tanners, oil manufacturers, millers, tin potters, glassmakers, weavers and wine-makers), the bay windows of its ancient shops, its bourgeois residences with staircase turrets, its streets and narrow alleyways, its squares, and much more.


Not to mention the peasant and ecclesiastical worlds with Saint-Pierre Benedictine Abbey (719), the parish church of Saint-Genest (11th and 13th centuries), the Ursulines convent (1632), the Dominican novitiate established by Father Lacordaire (1848) in the former Auxois bailiwick as well as the hotel of the Marquis de Souhey, governor of Flavigny, currently the headquarters of the Saint-Joseph-de-Clairval Benedictine abbey.
