Discover Dijon: Gustave Eiffel

Did you know that the famous Eiffel tower builder is a son of Dijon??
And did you know that there is the towerés little sister to be found in Dijon??

Well not exactly a little Eiffel tower... Gustave has designed Dijon's historic market building.
Everything you desire (to eat) can be found here on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturday mornings.

I used to go there grocery shopping almost weekly every tuesday and friday... but now i only have time to do so randomly on saturdays...

The pictures were taken by husband... please say something nice.. he went out and it was freaking cold outside... like -15 °C


  1. The steel structures make it look so delicate and detailed, very beautiful! There's definitely certain reminiscence to the Eiffel Tower.

  2. you are absolutely right. it's a pitty that it has been taken for granted a little bit. very few people know that... i know it is not the tour eiffel, but at least it is one piece Gustave left us ...

  3. Gorgeous!! I wish I could grocery shop somewhere like that!

  4. you should come over jessica, i know where to find the best cheese in town!!
