Semur-en-Auxois (pop. 4,200) is a picturesque medieval town located on the northeast edge of the Morvan National Park, half-way between Auxerre and Dijon. Founded on a pink granite outcrop, Semur had a defensive role from the start and was fortified at least since the Merovingian period.
The town is dominated by massive round towers and city walls. The collegiate church, started in 1225, is in Flamboyant Gothic style.
