Travel Tips for Auxerre

Cathedral of Saint-Etienne

by Lilasel

Saint-Etienne Cathedral is a model of elegance in accordance with the wishes of its designer, Bishop Guillaume de Seignelay (1215).
The sculptures on the facade, the design of the interior with its prominent chancel, the splendid stained glass windows.
It was built between 1023 - 1235.

Francois Brochets House

by mustertal

The house of the Francois Brochet the wood sculptor, is open to the public and free of charge.
There are a couple of rooms showing his art work as well as his colourful figures.
It isn't a large exhibition, but if you are interested in his work it's worth a visit.

Study the Cathedral's Stained Glass

by hquittner

The stained glass windows of Auxerre range from 13C medallion style in the choir area, with vivid reds and blues, to 16C lancets below the transept Rose windows. The early works reproduce such items as the story of David and Goliath, the Tree of Jesse lives of Saints (eg. Mammes). The oldest are of the Chartres type and worth a study of the detail.

16th century Jacques Amyot high school

by angiebabe

Auxerre's college was founded in the second half of the 16th century by Jacques Amyot who was bishop of Auxerre and apparently a famous translator of Plutarch's works. The bishop donated the college to the city of Auxerre and it was run by the Jesuits until the order was abilished in 1762 during the Revolution.
It was then run by laymen followed by the Benedictines from St Germain Abbey and then converted into a royal military school in 1777.

It became a boys school in 1802 and then Auxerre's first high school during the 20th century.

This place is not open for visiting as its a school but the architecture and lovely sculptured garden can be admired through the gates from the main road.

another one of Auxerre's loveliest squares

by angiebabe

The Town Hall's Square - Place de l'Hotel de Ville - called this in every french town i visited? - is a lovely square surrounded with interesting timbered buildings.

You can see the 15th century clock and bell tower from here and theres Marie Noels statue along with some interesting hanging shop signs! Apart from the elegant looking Town Hall built in 1733 the square looks nicely medieval!

Being pretty much smack bang in the middle of the town centre from here are interesting streets taking you out in various directions - down Rue Fecauderie past the pretty covered passageway and past the cathedral to the river or in the direction of the Counts Palace behind the clock tower - but otherwise follow the walking tour devised by the Auxerre Tourist Information Centre marked with a triangle along the streets giving you loads of information of the recommended sights.
