St Christophe En Brionnais

The village of St Christophe en Brionnais in the far south of the Saone et Loire department, is renowned for its cattle market. Not far from the town of Charolles, from which the famous breed of white Charolais cattle take their name, many Charolais pass through the town - 100,000 animals are sold there every year.

The market takes place early every Thursday, and the cattle wagons begin to arrive from 5 o'clock in the morning. By 6.30, 4,000 animals occupy the 3 hectares of the market and bidding is underway. Not a place to come for a quiet holiday!
