Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Sennecé-Les-Mâcon and its surroundings
The city of Macon is a beautiful place in south-eastern France, and staying at the Campanile MACON NORD - Sennecé hotel is the perfect way to discover its history and culture. A good place to start here might be the Cathédrale Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, which was built in the 11th century and finished in the 14th century, and is a landmark in the city centre.
Elsewhere, the city is home to a collection of museums, the most comprehensive of which being the Ursuline Museum. This is home to archaeological artefacts, fine art and an ethnographical section which tells the story of Macon and its inhabitants. One of the smaller museums, the Musée Lamartine, is dedicated to Alphonse de Lamartine, a famous writer and poet who was born in Macon.
For theatregoers and music lovers, the theatre at the Centre Cultural Louis Escande, just 6km from your hotel, is the place to go. Macon Symphony Orchestra has a particularly interesting programme this year, with a focus in the spring season on Russian music. Every year, l'Été Frappée festival takes place in June and July, and is a whirl of colour, dance and music which is a sight to behold if you're in town at the right time! Macon, being in the Burgundy region, is famous for its wines too, the best-known of which being Pouilly-Fuissé. If you have time, go on a wine tour and discover the secrets of the region's viticulture.
