Do Not Miss the Cathedral
Our Last Stop in Bourgogne

Auxerre is a modest French city (pop. 41K) with significant old churches, an old town and a river side siting. It is like many other French cities in this respect, resembling to us larger places like Le Mans or Rouen. It was our last stop on a two week traversal of Burgundy and we spent a whole day there. We were most interested in the ambiance and the churches.

The Main Site

The most important site in Auxerre is the Cathedral of St. Stephen (13-15C) which is a fine example of Flamboyant Gothic style.
