The village of Blanot lies in a fold of the Monts du Mâconnais, at the foot of Mont Saint-Romain, in the north-east of the canton of Cluny. In this splendid village you will discover the 13th-century Cluniac Priory, ancient wash-houses, bread ovens, lava roofs, gallery houses, dry stone walls and Merovingian tombs from the 6th and 7th centuries.
You can visit its famous caves! The caves were discovered in 1739. The chambers are more than 80 metres deep, set against a magical backdrop of stalactites and stalagmites.
You'll also discover Mont Saint-Romain, at an altitude of 580 m, an orientation table with a superb view of the Alps and the Jura, then the Charolais mountains and the Morvan to the west.
On this ancient Gallo-Roman site, the monks of Cluny founded a priory in the 11th century, which was destroyed at the end of the 18th century.
