Auxerre, a navigable port on the Yonne and the starting point of the Nivernais Canal, is also the capital of Lower Burgundy, a hilly region with plateaux covered by fields and forests, and exposed slopes lined with vines and fruit trees. Auxerre, where Cadet Roussel grew up, is famous for its football team, famously managed by the ineffable Guy Roux for many years; it has a remarkable cathedral and, last but not least, the prestigious Abbaye St-Germain, home to some of France's oldest frescoes.
