Branches is a French commune located in the department of Yonne, in the region Bourgogne-Franche-Comté.
Branches is part of the Auxerre agglomeration, it is a member of the Communauté de l'Auxerrois. The commune is home to the Auxerre - Branches airport, which is managed by the Yonne Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Branches is known for the medieval frescoes in its church.
The Church of Saint Martin de Branches dates from the 12th century. This monument has undergone various periods of history and has therefore been destroyed and rebuilt several times.
In 1939, the whitewash on the interior walls began to flake off, which led to the discovery of wall paintings in ochre tones. These exceptional paintings date from the 12th and 15th centuries. The church is open every year during the Heritage Days.
