Forge de BuffonThe Great Forge de Buffon was founded in 1768 by the renowned naturalist Buffon, who was from Montbard. This forge was designed to be an effective and integrated plant, grouping in a single location the furnace, refinery and splitting mill, but also houses for the forge master and workers, as well as all the necessary support buildings.

La Grande Forge de Buffon is the heiress of the Forge de Fontenay, which is recognized as one of the very first ironworks in Europe.

The Forge is open to visitors.
