Around Yonne Meanders


The Yonne Valley is a bocage region, with meadows, forests, and wetlands. In the Gallo-Roman period, the Yonne Meanders were an important passage point. The Roman road linking Paris to Lyon passed through the Yonne Valley, and the Meanders were a strategic point. In the Middle Ages, the Yonne Meanders were an important agricultural production area. The fertile lands of the valley were conducive to the cultivation of cereals, fruits, and vegetables. In the 16th century, the Nivernais Canal was built to connect the Loire to the Seine. The canal crosses the Yonne Meanders, and has contributed to the region's development.
