Church Saint Martin to Garchy

Garchy, or rather Guerchy, surrounded by woods and well cultivated land, is situated on a Creek of the same name, one of the branches of the small river of Mesves (Meves).

It was formerly a stronghold with seigniorial Castle. One of the Lords of Garchy, Jean Regnier, bailly of Auxerre for 36 years, is author of distinguished poems. An another Lord of this place was the terrible Marafin, Governor of La Charité, which participated so ardent religious feuds, under Charles IX.

The Church, located in the centre of the village, is a pure building from the 11th century (some sources sayd 12th century). The sanctuary, a bit dark, is the neat part with the portal, whose ornaments remind Donzy-le-Pré and Saint-Laurent - the Abbey; everywhere, there are pearls.
