About the place:

Located on the right bank of the Saone River, Villefranche-sur-saone is a commune in France. The city is located within the Rhône department and has an estimated population of 29,000. It’s known for its medieval castle that was built by Charles III in 1220. The castle remains one of the most important monuments in this region with imposing architecture to show off.

The city is situated on the right bank of the Saône opposite Lyon. The town was founded by the Romans and they named it Vile fere saltus which means Rapid Creek or Slippery Ford after an incident when Julius Caesar’s horse slipped crossing to hunt deer near Mont Pilat. In Roman times there were two important routes from Italy coming together at Villefrance: one along Découverte street through Saint Péravy le Fort leading out towards Autun; another from Rome across Bourg de Four, Beaujolais toward Marseilles via La Roche sur Foron . It became a small but rich merchant city with a record population of 1500 in 1311.
