The town of Chatillon-sur-Seine is where the river Seine comes out of the ground and begins its flow to Paris and beyond.

A more famous river source is that of the River Seine which lies between St-Seine-l’Abbaye and Chanceaux. Visit the site and you can tell your friends that you have been to Paris for the day as it actually belongs to the City of Paris! In ancient times this was a place of worship and healing, but now there is a man made grotto with a modern statue of a nymph, the original having been destroyed by vandals. The archaeological finds from here are displayed in the Archaeological Museum in Dijon, including the bronze statue of the goddess Sequana on a small Roman boat.
