  • Beautiful discovery of the crypt by the quality of the guide. An exceptional site. The Museum area at the top of the archaeological excavations is very well highlighted

  • In addition to being a beautiful Abbey, this 3 'mini' Museum welcomes each worth a visit. I highly recommend the guided tour of the crypt, the guide was excellent.

  • This place had to be very impressive, but is not properly met by the various regimes that ruled the France. I find that the whole deserves a better development despite the fact that what was destroyed (under Napoleon) can no longer be reconstructed. The Carolingian crypt was the main attraction of the tour for me but is by guided tour only and we arrived after the last of the morning.

  • getting old and lack some maintenance, but definitely worth a visit.
  • The Abbey of Saint-Germain was probably the most important monasteries of Auxerre and the East always. A small oratory dedicated to Saint-Maurice-of Agaune was founded in the 5th century by Saint-Germain, illustrious Bishop of Auxerre. After his death in Ravenna in 448, his body is transported to Auxerre and deposited in the oratory. Around the year 500, the Queen Clothilde decided to build a larger church on the tomb of the Saint so revered, we're talking about the first Basilica of Saint-Germain.
