Clamecy is a flowery town located at the confluence of the Yonne and Beuvron rivers on the Canal du Nivernais. Tourist centre of the Vaux d'Yonne and ancient medieval city, it was the capital of the wood floating for the supply of Paris. It is also the home of Romain Rolland, Claude Tillier and also the navigator Alain Colas. Do not miss the Romain Rolland art museum which has a large collection of works by this internationally renowned writer. It is good to stroll through the picturesque streets admiring its old half-timbered houses (Maison du Tisserand) and its collegiate church Saint-Martin whose bell tower dominates the city. Clamecy is also a port for boaters who cruise on the Canal du Nivernais. On the right bank of the Yonne, the church of Bethlehem received the label "Heritage of the 20th century". Visit the collegiate church of Saint-Martin: take a step back and admire the elegant facade of this 12th-16th century Gothic church. Then, as you approach, you can also appreciate the richness of the portal's decoration. Enter and look around, you will be struck by the purity of the forms, the lightness of the columns and the height of the vaults. Don't miss the chapel of the Tower, where you will find beautiful painted or sculpted works of the Renaissance. Enjoy your visit!
