Out of the many squares in Dijon, Place Francois-Rude attracts attention with its old world charm reflected through its timber-framed houses. Named after the sculptor Francois Rude, the square has a beautiful statue in its centre. Present since 1904, the fountain represents a winemaker treading grapes in a vat. The statue is commonly called as Bareuzai, a name designated to a person who treads the grapes in Burgundian culture. With architecture that represents a mix of medieval and Renaissance, the place has become one of most photographed points in Dijon. The square today is occupied by tea rooms, pubs, banks and fashion boutiques.
