The Tower of Philippe le Bon, originally 'Tour de la Terrasse', overlooks the entire Palace of the Dukes and States of Burgundy. Built between 1450 and 1460 for Philip the Good - at the same time as the ducal residence- – it is a reminder of Dijon’s glorious medieval past under the reign of the great Valois dukes.
N.B. visiting the tower is not recommended for pregnant women or people with limited mobility (316 steps).

The Well of Moses is a masterpiece created by Claus Sluter and his nephew Claus de Werne. It reflects the exceptional influence of the Burgundian style of sculpture in the medieval period. Take a look at your leisure.
