  • The city is the most recognizable building was built in IX century on the place of an older structure. The part of the crypt dating to VI century.  more »
  • Beautiful building, the Saint-Germain Abbey, is a former benedictine Abbey founded in the 5th century by saint Germain of Auxerre with one of his disciples Saturnin. The building is very well kept and beautiful.

  • The Abbey offers many well-made archaeological exhibition space. We recommend visiting the crypts (guided tour compulsory) which is really impressive. Many tombs (of course) but the rooms and chapels underground and the oldest original murals of france (is it you please) is recommended

  • The guided visit was only in French, but the guide gave a few words in English & German too. Some paintings are from the 1st century, the structure represents many centuries too. It is all about the tombs of St Germain and successive bishops. Religiosity not required.
  • Very informative but could have more descriptors with english.
  • getting old and lack some maintenance, but definitely worth a visit.
  • Guided tour of l.Abbaye and the Merovingian crypt absolutely wonderful, rewarding and friendly.
