Autun The Essential
Recommended
The town of Autun stands against wooded hills, dominating the Arrouz valley. The forests in Autun gave the town its furnishing industry, but you have to look further back in the past to recall the town's finest period, when it was « sister and equal to Rome ». Augustodunum must have been a very large town since a theatre which seating 20,000 was built there... The Roman influence which will enthral you the most in this town , especially the exceptional talent of the sculptor Gislebertus..
