Recommended
St Benoit and Max Jacob are associated with the town; the former on account of his relics, venerated here since the 8C; the latter, a 20C poet, made this his place of retreat. The Benedictine basilica has a remarkable tower portal. Nearby is the little church of Germigny des Prés, a rare jewel of Carolingian art and one of France's earliest churches.
