Where is Burgundy, France? 

Burgundy (French: Bourgogne; German: Burgund) is a region historically situated in modern-day France and Switzerland, originally inhabited in turn by Celts (Gauls), Romans (Gallo-Romans), and in the 4th century assigned by Romans to the Germanic people of the Burgundians, who settled there in their own kingdom. This Burgundian kingdom was conquered in the 6th century by Franks who continued this kingdom under their own rule.wikipedia

Burgundy, France - Château de la Rochepot

The Château de la Rochepot is a 13th-century castle, later converted into a château, in the commune of La Rochepot in the Côte d'Or département in Burgundy, France. 

The castle was built in the 13th century on an outcrop of limestone to the north of the village of La Rochepot. As with many castles, it fell into ruin and it was only restored in the 19th century by the Carnot family.
