  • Very informative but could have more descriptors with english.
  • 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.
