The medieval community
At the far reaches of Champagne and Burgundy, Ervy-le-Châtel entices visitors to wander down its small medieval streets and discover the treasures of its architectural heritage. The most original example is its timber-framed Halle Circulaire (“Circular Covered Market”) with its magnificent chestnut ceiling. Saint-Pierre-ès-Liens church is a museum of the 16th century Champenois school, notable for its statuary and its stained glass windows. The town also boasts the only medieval gate still remaining in the Aube, the Porte Saint-Nicolas. Discover Ervy-le-Châtel’s heritage of stained glass and church windows at the ‘Maison du Vitrail’ (House of Stained Glass Windows), nearby the Glass-making workshops.
