Only Bagnols' shape bears witness to the fact that it was once a fortified village. Stroll down its alleyways to discover 15th and 16th century Beaujolais-style houses with their porch roofs and really beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding hills.
Famous throughout the world for its wines and vineyards, the Beaujolais is also a region shaped by man, who has reaped the benefits of the soil's diversity. Its past is literally written in stone: in the golden, red, white, grey or black rocks and stones that have visibly been put to good use in local construction. This remarkable geology has given rise to great diversity, not only in the landscapes and heritage, but also in terms of human activity, in the culture and traditions that form the identity of the Beaujolais region.
