Luxeuil owes a great deal to its abbey, founded by St Colomban in the 6C. But it has also been a reputed spa town for a long time, which explains the rich decoration of its old town's mansions. Climb to the top of the tower, Tour des Échevins, to enjoy a delightful view of the town and the Vosges mountains. It is impossible to talk about Luxeuil without mentioning its famous lace; more dextrous visitors can even have a go at lacemaking.
