Welcome to Noyers-sur-Serein
Stone ramparts and fortified battlements enclose much of the village and, between the two imposing stone gateways, cobbled streets lead past 15th- and 16th-century gabled houses, wood and stone archways and several art galleries. Lines carved into the façade of the 18th-century mairie (town hall), next to the library, mark the level of historic floods.
Noyers makes a delightful base for walking. A pretty path runs along the village's eastern edge between the old town walls and the river, eventually climbing to a ruined hilltop château. The tourist office can provide information on several longer hikes in the region.
