Things to see and do

On leaving the main thoroughfare, on a vast esplanade, sits an imposing neo-classical church.

Fortifications, old ditches, ramparts, Renaissance buildings testify to the existence in these places, two castles in the 10th century.

Laundries, crucifixes, crosses, chapels underline the emotion and beauty of the heritage sennecéen ...

Away from the main communication routes, Saint Julien (original seat of the village), houses a church faithful to the charm of Burgundian Romanesque buildings.
