Travel Tips for Auxerre

Clock Tower and Marie Noel.

by Lilasel

There are many different and rather funny statues in the centre. The statue of an old lady will surprise you (look the picture - the right side). This familiar image recalls one of the most important French poetesses of the 20th century: Marie Noel. She was from Auxerre region and, in solitude, she lived a very touching, internal adventure, which inspired the magic form of her popular songs.

Look At the Transepts and Crossing

by hquittner

The transepts , their Rose windows and the crossing were added in the mid-16C. The tympanum of the South Door is devoted to the stoning of St. Stephen while the north tympanum displays the Life of St. Germanus.

Visit the Cathedral Treasury

by hquittner

The treasury of Auxerre cathedral is particularly rich in antique fine arts: enameled reliquary caskets as early as the 12C, and equally old portable polyptych altars. There are old hand scribed music books and early printed and hand painted ones as well (early 1500's). If it open be sure to visit and help support the church. You will enjoy the time spent.

Chapel of Order of the Visitation/Auxerre museum

by angiebabe

The sisters of the Visitation of St Mary (rather than the visitation of Jesus Christ?) established themselves in Auxerre in 1658 like many other 'counter reformation' congregations. Work on the chapel began in 1860 and lasted for 'several dozen years'.

The facade was not constructed until 1714 by the architect Guillaume Joyneau of Sens.

The chapels interior with its rare Burgundy dome is regarded as particularly remarkable. Now this building houses the Auxerre Museum and displays the work of local artist Francois Brochet, responsible for many of the polychrome figures and sculptures around Auxerre town centre.

down at the river Yonne

by angiebabe

The main tourist office is down here at the river and starts its walking tour here - here it recommends too to get the best panoramic vantage point of the town ie in their opinion to admire 'one of Frances most beautiful panoramas'! (and the town's not even mentioned in my travel bible, the Lonely Planet!)

But anyway where ever you start the walking tour if you're following the 'Follow the Thread of History in Auxerre' you will eventually arrive at the Marine neighbourhood where the bargemen and river workers lived and the river on which they worked!
