Porte Guillaume

La Porte Guillaume est un Arc de triomphe du XVIIIe siècle, à l'entrée Ouest de la ville. Son nom rappelle le souvenir de Guillaume de Volpiano, réformateur de l'abbaye bénédictine Saint- Bénigne au XIe siècle. A l'origine, la porte Guillaume était insérée dans les remparts de la ville, construits après le grand incendie qui détruisit Dijon en 1137.

The Guillaume Door is a Triumphal arch of the XVIIIe century, at the West entry of the city. Its name points out the memory of Guillaume de Volpiano, reformer of the "Saint Benigne" abbey in XIe century. To the origin, the Guillaume door was inserted in the ramparts(wall)of the city, built after the large fire which destroyed Dijon in 1137.
