St. William’s Gate is a triumphal arch in Dijon located in the west entrance to the city. Close to Place Darcy, the monument is significant as it marks the beginning of old Dijon. Originally inserted in the walls that are not present today, the arch seems impressive with its 100 metres height and 25 metres width. The arch is named after William of Volpiano, investigator of the Reformation of Abbey at Saint Benigne in 15th century.
