The mâconnaise associative radio Aléo celebrated its 20 years in 2016 by reaffirming its values of openness, tolerance, humanism, its roots in the territory but also its unfailing support for French-speaking song (5000 songs in broadcast) and local creation. With its 2 employees and its ten active volunteers, the radio receives each year more than 200 people who speak on social, cultural, artistic or local subjects.
Mâcon is a city in the Burgundy region of east-central France. Exhibits at the Musée des Ursulines, a former 17th-century convent, focus on art, archeological excavations and local urban history. La Maison de Bois, a centuries-old house, features a wooden facade with unusual statues of monkeys and masked characters. Dating from the 19th-century, the Église Saint-Pierre is a Romanesque church with twin steeples.
France, in Western Europe, encompasses medieval cities, alpine villages and Mediterranean beaches. Paris, its capital, is famed for its fashion houses, classical art museums including the Louvre and monuments like the Eiffel Tower. The country is also renowned for its wines and sophisticated cuisine. Lascaux?s ancient cave drawings, Lyon?s Roman theater and the vast Palace of Versailles attest to its rich history.
