    Follow the Orbandale Way at your own time and pace
    This trail is called “Orbandale” after the poetic name given to the town of Chalon-sur-Saône during the Middle Ages. In 1662, the historian Léonard Bertaut published a book entitled “The Illustrated Orbandale, or the Ancient and Modern History of the city and town of Chalon sur Saône”, and cites many sources which mention this name. According to him, the name takes its origins from the three golden rings (orbes in old French) which constitute the town’s Coat of Arms, and which symbolize the three rows of gilded bricks that appeared on the old boundary walls that encircled the town.
