Fall under the spell of Besançon’s old town. Epicenter of culture, it has a rich and diverse number of collections shared between museums in the city center and the Citadelle. The Museum of Fine Arts and Archeology and the Time museum both house prestigious masterpieces.
BESANCON IS THE BIRTHPLACE OF VICTOR HUGO
The house where Victor Hugo was born is on the same square where Charles Nodier and the Lumière brothers were born and where Gustave Courbet lived. Its doors were opened to the public in 2013. Hugo’s battles and his commitments come alive through sets designed with the latest technology. No. 140, Grande Rue is the place to learn about and reflect upon the extraordinary heritage, both literary and political, that he left for us.
