Migennes Base

Situated at the confluence of the Yonne, the Armencon and the Serein, the history of Migennes has been tied to the canal for centuries. Since ancient times, it has been at the heart of the crossroads of the commercial routes through Burgundy and has been an important town in the religious landscape of France..
