Mont-Saint-Vincent (Saône and Loire)

A nice little town in the country.

This old town built to 610 m of altitude above mountains of Charolais was a powerful barony in the middle-ages. See the unique panorama of the belvedere. In clear weather we discover the chain of Mont Blanc and the Puy de Dome.
