Coulanges-la-Vineuse - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Yonne

Coulanges-la-Vineuse is situated between two valleys, on the back of a ridge that descends into the valley of the Yonne. This gives it a picturesque appearance " perched " in the middle of a circus full of props that faces the Irancy. Probably built in the second half of the 14th century, the walls were a sort of parallelogram and were dominated by eleven towers of unequal sizes.

Things to see and do

The St. Christopher Church : From the old church, which collapsed Sept. 21, 1733, there remains only the steeple of the late 14th century Gothic form, the tower is square at the base, octagonal last stage to receive the arrow. The present church was built from 1737 to 1742 and is the work of Servandoni student Soufflot ( born Irancy ). The large size of the building surprises visitors ; it shows the importance of the village in the 18th century. Classic, almost baroque, volume met the requirements of Coulangeois of the time. Inside, the most beautiful object was undoubtedly the picture painted on wood in the 15th century depicting the Annunciation. Moved several times, it was even used to be on his blackboard at school... He is currently being restored.

It pays to roam the streets that never end to appear like a maze. There are all trademarks of wealth in history.

The impasse recalls Maurice was born in Coulanges man of the same name, known as the National Archives Sieur de Coulanges who was bishop of Nevers and confessor of Charles VI.

Another example is the street Aguesseau, Lord of Coulanges (late 17th - early 18th century), which was certainly the minister of Louis XIV. D'Aguesseau was originally the arrival of Verse, geographer Paris immortalized too, who knew how to create the first water harvesting to supply the city.
