St Benoit and Max Jacob are associated with the town; the former on account of his relics, venerated here; the latter, a 20C poet, made Fleury Abbey his place of retreat before he was arrested by the Gestapo. The Benedictine basilica boasts a remarkable tower portal. Nearby is the little church of Germigny des Prés, a rare jewel of Carolingian art, home to a gold and silver mosaic that is reminiscent of antique Byzantium.
