Old medieval town located in the Champagne-Ardenne region, Bar-sur-Aube enjoyed a very prosperous period in the course of the Middle Ages. His fame was mainly due to the prosperity of its famous Champagne fairs that brought together merchants from all over Europe, from Flanders to Italy. If the walls have disappeared, however still we admire old buildings and beautiful monuments in the old city center.
The scenery surrounding Bar-sur-Aube also worth a visit with its hills and Coteaux Champenois. The city is also crossed by the Dawn, as its name suggests, offers pleasant walks along the water. It is a pleasure to stroll through the picturesque streets of the city and admiring the architectural and historical heritage of the city, particularly well developed.
Today, the city continues the traditional activities that have made it famous, like crystal, forges, or the wood or hemp industries.
