Melun The Essential
Melun has been around since Ancient times, at the convergence of river and land routes, on this island formed in a bend of the River Seine. The town stands at the gates of Brie, which supplied Paris with flour. Former residence of the Capetian Kings, it is now an intermediary town between Paris and the provinces, a major university and cultural centre and, for gourmets, this where the renowned Brie cheese originated.
