No mention is made of Saint-Sauveur before the fourth century. It was under Bishop Aunaire in 580 that you cite "Cella Sancti Salvi." The village of Saint-Sauveur, hung to the sides of a steep hill that dominates the keep of the 11th century, ovoid tower section, called Saracen, is home to Colette. From the Castle Museum, you can see the streets that tumble down into the valley of the Loing, the Church of St. John the Baptist, the roofs of old houses in Burgundy, the birthplace of Colette.
