Lugny, small town of under a thousand inhabitants, is the small capital of the Haut-Mâconnais and the heart of the municipalities community of the Mâconnais-Val de Saône, grouping up twelve towns, and over six thousand inhabitants.
The cute town is at the very bottom of a valley, surrounded by hills covered in woods and wineyards, crossed by a little river, the "Bourbonne". It used to be the bed of a chivalry house, but its castle was mostly destroyed during the french Revolution, leaving behind only the two towers guarding the entrance, a part of its shared spaces, almost none of the walls, and the base of a tower.
Lugny is also a traditional village, having kept a large heirloom such as the houses of the Mâconnais, the washes, the wells, ... and even a pretty fountain at the heart of the main square, the "place du Pâquier", surrounded by four plane trees, all over 150 years old. Next to it lies a statue of a war soldier, acting as a memorial after the world wars.
