Description

Discover the delightful town of Gray on our guided tour. The town became wealthy thanks to a wide range of industries and businesses, making Gray one of the main three strongholds in Franche-Comté. You’ll have some time to admire the charming, traditional houses while your guide tells you all about the region’s past. During your visit, you’ll discover gorgeous monuments such as the Town Hall, a listed historic building and one of the most beautiful Renaissance edifices in Franche-Comté that was built between 1567 and 1572. You’ll also be able to marvel at the Gothic-style Notre Dame Basilica, whose façade was only completed in 1863, as well as the Hotel-Dieu built between 1716 and 1747 under the orders of Louis XIV. Don’t miss its three sculptures representing the theological virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity. Afterwards, enjoy a tasting of local products on board.
