Auxerre, a navigable port on the Yonne and the starting point for the Nivernais canal starts, is also the capital of lower Burgundy, a valley region whose plateaux are made up of fields and forests, with slopes lined with vines and fruit trees. Auxerre is also where Cadet Roussel was brought up, and is famous for its football team managed by Guy Roux; it has a remarkable cathedral and the jewel in the crown, the prestigious abbaye Saint-Germain, home to some of France's oldest frescoes.
