  • The Abbey in it even is, however the crypt is beautiful and there is a beautiful courtyard of the cloisters. A special mention for the room exposing archaeological excavations beneath us. A very nice historical Museum... very complete.. .but it takes time

  • Guided tour of the crypt with mr Gaelle, really very interesting. For 7 euros per adult, you will have access to the guided tour, the two museums inside and exhibitions... To do!

  • Gorgeous very well maintained building. Guided tour organised by the tourist office recommended to lovers of old stone, including the quite remarkable crypt.

  • 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.
