Travel Tips for Auxerre

The first step

by Lilasel

First of all you should go down towards the river, and take in the whole sight from the right bank, revealing the fine view. There are three great religious buildings: the Cathedral of Saint-Etienne, the Abbey of Saint-Germain and the vinedressers' church of Saint Peter dominate the Yonne which directs the whole region towards the Seine and Paris.

Enter the Cathedral

by hquittner

This is Flamboyant verticality at its acme (although only 99 feet high). The fine limestone used at Auxerre allowed forthe elimination of capitals on the vertical columns so that they could run unimpeded into the vaulting. (The buttresses are internal). This is accompanied by a triforium that is delicate tracery. The clerestory windows copy those of Chartres: two lancets and a large oculus above.

Horloge

by ATLC

Can't be missed. Auxerre, like many other French cities, has a Grand Horloge. It was built in the 15th century on the fondation of Gallo Roman tower. First it was a prison and later a clock and bell tower (1483).

Walk to the Abbey Church of St. Germanus

by hquittner

St. Germanus is the ancient religious center of Auxerre. It was a Benedictine Abbey in the 6C. Remains odf a later Carolingian two-level crypt lie beneath the later 13 & 15C Gothic church. We visited the crypt but could not take pictures of the frescos. The church fabric consists of a Lady Chapel a crossing and South transept and a little more. A fine South doorway gives upon the cloister. The church is not in use.

look out for medieval streets

by angiebabe

Following the 'Follow the Thread of History in Auxerre' walking tour you get to see a significant number of historical sights with the accompanying information - but keep your eyes open along the way for pretty and interesting streets along the way in between those sights pointed out to you.

I found it a really interesting and photogenic town to roam around! especially with the number of old or medieval buildings and streets around the town.
and as usual I was in a hurry so unfortunately i didnt read about some other very interesting places on the recommended tour until too late!
