History[edit] Ancient and Medieval eras[edit] The agglomeration of Mâcon
Mâcon
originates from the establishment of an oppidum and of a river port by the Celts
Celts
from the Aedui, probably at the beginning of the first century BC. Known then under the name of Matisco, the town developed significantly during the age of the Roman Empire. This is demonstrated by the large Roman hoard, the Mâcon Treasure, that was discovered in the town in 1764, the remains of which is in the British Museum.[4] During the 4th century, the town was fortified. During the Middle Ages, Mâcon
Mâcon
was the administrative center of a county belonging to the Duchy of Burgundy
Duchy of Burgundy
at the extremity of the bridge over the Saône
Saône
leading to the Bresse
Bresse
territory belonging to the Duchy of Savoy. The town was controlling access to present-day Lamartinien Valley (Val Lamartinien), where the southern end of the Côte de Bourgogne joins the first foothills of the Beaujolais
Beaujolais
hills, opening the way to the rich plains of the Loire. On 3 June 1564, Charles IX from Chalon, stopped in the town during his Royal Tour of France
France
(1564–1566), accompanied by the Court and the nobles of his kingdom, including his brother the Duke of Anjou, Henry of Navarre, the cardinals of Bourbon and Lorraine.[5] The town is strategically built: it was a possible entrance into the kingdom for the Swiss or German mercenaries during the French Wars of Religion. He was welcomed by the Queen Jeanne III of Navarre, nicknamed the “Queen of Protestants”, and 1,500 Huguenots. Revolutionary and Imperial eras[edit] On 21 October 1790, the matriarch of a prominent local family gave birth to a son who remains highly visible in his hometown, the Romantic poet and historian Alphonse de Lamartine.[6] In 1790, the Revolutionary government designated Mâcon
Mâcon
as the capital (chef-lieu) of Saône-et-Loire, a newly created département within the radical restructuring of national administration. In 1814, the town was invaded by Austrian troops and then liberated twice by French troops before being permanently occupied until the fall of the Empire. After Napoléon’s return and the subsequent Hundred Days, Mâcon
Mâcon
and the Mâconnais
Mâconnais
were again captured by the Austrians. Second World War[edit] During World War II, Mâcon
Mâcon
was the first town in the unoccupied zone libre between Paris
Paris
and Lyon. The town was liberated on 4 September by the troops who had landed in Provence.[7]

and Crêches-sur- Saône
Saône
communes. The Urban Transport Area of the SITUM extends over 28 communes in total. On the evening of 30 June 2009, the Mâcon

So since 1 July 2009, the company CarPostal Mâcon (CarPostal France's subsidiary) has been providing city transport services on the network renamed Tréma.

Demography[edit] Mâcon
Mâcon
is one of the department’s major employment areas which is by far the most dynamic (13.5% increase between 1999 and 2006) compared to cities such as Chalon-sur- Saône
Saône
or Montceau-les-Mines
Montceau-les-Mines
which are losing jobs. This dynamism is particularly helped by the many transportation links available and its proximity to Lyon. Associated districts and communes[edit] Town centre[edit]

(Cathédrale le Vieux Saint-Vincent)

Saint-Pierre Church (1859–1865)

The Hôtel-Dieu built in the 18th century by Melchior Munet, a student of Soufflot.

Mâcon’s town center of extends from Place Gardon, in the north, to the Roundabout of Europe in the south, from Place de la Barre, in the west, to the banks along the Saône
Saône
to the east. The quarters of the town's centre are varied:

The center by the town hall is the town’s shopping area (rue Carnot, rue Dufour, rue Sigorgne, rue Philibert-Laguiche, rue Dombert, rue Franche, the quay Lamartine, the esplanade Lamartine
Lamartine
and rue de la Barre). Most landmarks are in this conventional centre-ville including the Cathedral of Saint-Vincent, the Church of Saint Pierre and the town’s two museums. The Saint-Antoine district is centred around the Place aux Herbes and the historic heart despite its relative distance from the Town Hall. This district covers the northern part of the town centre; it is crossed by the rue de Strasbourg
Strasbourg
and consists of narrow lanes. There is the prefecture (district headquarters) of Saône-et-Loire
Saône-et-Loire
and the old Saint-Vincent Cathedral (Vieux Saint-Vincent). West lies the Square de la Paix, bordered by the Hôtel-Dieu, the Palais de Justice, Saint-Vincent Cathedral, plus the Vallon des Rigollettes and the Héritan district.

From the late 1990s to the early 2000s, the esplanade Lamartine underwent extensive redevelopment and upgrades. The winding car park and damaged cobblestones were replaced by an underground car park on three levels, a larger and brighter esplanade, bars, and a stage on the water (of the Saône
Saône
river) which now accommodates all kinds of events, concerts and shows. The Statue Lamartine, which sits proudly on the esplanade, was completely renovated. Small gardens now brighten up the immense space that Mâcon’s Esplanade Lamartine
Lamartine
occupies. All along, one can find an extract from the famous poem by Lamartine, “Le Lac”: "Time, halt in your flight... " engraved in the ground in silver letters. North of Mâcon[edit] The north of Mâcon
Mâcon
is split, with the Neusdadt roundabout marking the boundary between the two sections. Flacé-lès-Mâcon, a village built in the city, constitutes the north-west of Mâcon. . In addition to the adjoining Town Hall, church and small downtown area, Flacé consists entirely of residential areas. The north-east of Mâcon
Mâcon
is composed of various residential areas and the town’s sport centres (Physical Activity Training Course (P.A.P.A), public swimming pool, Centre for Sports Education, rowing, sailing and water skiing clubs, several football fields and clubs, and the Sports Palace). ). The residential areas consist mainly of low-rent council estates (HLM) with districts such as the priority development areas (ZUP) of Mâcon
Mâcon
or the boulevard des États-Unis (road belonging administratively to the Saugeraies district). South of Mâcon[edit] The south of Mâcon
Mâcon
is composed of three major areas.

The first area is the Saint-Clément/Les Blanchettes block, also called Percée Sud. Saint-Clément only accounts for a small area but it is southern Mâcon’s main business area with the Europe roundabout. Les Blanchettes is a district of low-rent council estates (HLM) passing through Édouard-Herriot Avenue. It is a very woody area, which includes most notably the Parc des Allumettes and its numerous games for children. The Romanesque church is in Saint-Clément, bearing the name of this town. The second area is the largest in this part of the town; it is the industrial area south of Mâcon
Mâcon
(the largest metropolitan area) which is composed of the Port River at Mâcon
Mâcon
(6 in France). The third and final area in the south of Mâcon
Mâcon
is the Chanaye / Fontenailles and is southwest of the town. Fontenailles is a residential area consisting of detached houses. La Chanaye (pronounced "Chanai") is an area of low-rent council estates (HLM) bordered by the greenhouses of Mâcon. This district, along with the Boulevard des États-Unis, Saint-Clément/les Blanchettes and priority development areas (ZUP) of Mâcon, belongs to the sensitive urban zones (French ZUS).

West of Mâcon[edit] The west of Mâcon
Mâcon
is the least populated part of the town. This hosts Mâcon’s lycées (René Cassin, Lamartine, Alexandre Dumaine and Ozanam) and most of the colleges, along with some residential areas merged with those of Charnay-lès-Mâcon, the Hospital of Mâcon
Mâcon
and the historic working class area of Mâcon,Bioux. Flacé[edit] Formerly an independent commune, Flacé-lès- Mâcon
Mâcon
was re-attached to Mâcon
