The abbé (abbot) Bardenet, superior of the Saint-Esprit hospital in Besançon, gave his book collection to the town. The collections became a lot larger with the Revolution.At that time, the revolutionaries (people who led the French Revolution) took the books from the monasteries of the town (capucins) and even of the region (Luxeuil and Faverney monasteries).
The museum looks back at the miners' work, the techniques and tools they used, and their social life. The chapel of Notre Dame du Haut, designed by Le Corbusier, is located in Ronchamp.
In this project, the structural design of the roof was inspired by the engineering of airfoils. By Le Corbusier’s own admission, it was the site that provided an irresistible genius loci for the response, with the horizon visible on all four sides of the hill and its historical legacy for centuries as a place of worship.
This historical legacy weaved in different layers into the terrain — from the Romans and sun-worshippers before them, to a cult of the Virgin in the Middle Ages, right through to the modern church and the fight against the German occupation.
Vesoul is located in the center of the Haute-Saône and is equidistant from the other cities of the department.
It is located at the intersection of highways Road 19 and Road 57, the SNCF Paris-Basel.
