Canal du Nivernais
The initial idea for the construction of this canal was only to facilitate the floating of wood from Châtillon en Bazois to Paris via Clamecy.
Basilique de Vézelay
Let yourself be dazzled by the beauty of the immense Romanesque vessel where, in an unbroken dance, the light vibrates the stone.
Château de Bazoches
Established halfway down a wooded hill on the site of an ancient Roman post, in direct line of sight with Vézelay, the feudal castle of Bazoches built in the 7th century was acquired in 1675 by the Marshal of Vauban.
Noyers sur Serein
No matter which path you take, Noyers, a proud medieval city, will charm and intrigue you through its cobbled streets.
