The Yonne river, an inhabited axis
The Yonne river flows through a valley which constitutes a true linear oasis, greener and much more inhabited than the surrounding plateaus. The most important towns in the department are in fact aligned along a North-West / South-East axis, which, over two-thirds of its length, is materialized by the Yonne valley.

This is where Joigny, crossed here by boaters on a river cruise, is located.
