Places of interest in Burgundy

Though you are effectively in England there are many things to see and do in Burgundy:  

 

Visit the medieaval town of Auxerre on the river Yonne

Cathedral of St. Étienne (11th–16th centuries). In Gothic style, it is renowned for its three doorways with remarkable bas-reliefs. The stained glass windows in the choir and the apsidal chapel are among the finest in France. The 11th century crypt houses the remains of the former Romanesque cathedral.

Abbey of Saint-Germain, existing from the ninth century. The crypt has some of the most ancient mural paintings in France, and houses the tomb of the bishops of Auxerre. Also interesting are the chapter room (12th century), the cellar (14th century) and the cloister (seventeenth century).

 

The Clock tower, located in the Old Town

The church of St. Pierre en Vallée (17th–18th centuries), established over a 6th-century abbey. In the style of late Gothic architecture, it has a tower similar to that of the cathedral. Portions of the decorations and inner chapels were financed by local winegrowers. Church of St. Eusèbe, founded in the 7th century. The nave was rebuilt in the 13th century, while the tower is in Romanesque style.

 

Meet the artist.

Visit to the Chapelle de Bailly. Exhibition of paintings by Georges Hosotte, a world-renowned artist who, where possible, will be present to greet participants. Visit to the Caves de Bailly, with the opportunity to purchase locally produced crémant, wine etc. We can organise a visit to the smaller wine-growers in the area, including Chablis, Irancy, Saint-Bris, Coulanges –la-Vineuse and others, where you can purchase wines that are difficult or impossible to buy otherwise.
