The village was originally named Saint-Pierre-sous-Cordois.

In 448 bishop
In the 11th century a chapel was erected on the spot where she had died ; it was destroyed during the 18th century. In the 2000s (decade), a woman from the village made a donation to the village in her will, in order for a statue to be erected where the chapel had once stood. This was done in 2009. Her story is told on a sign accompanying the statue, which stands on the edge of a wood, on the side of the D906 road between Sainte-Magnance (Yonne) and Rouvray (Côte-d'Or). The D906 at this place is the limit between the two departements ; the statue is actually in the Côte-d'Or side of the road but is very much linked with the Yonne village of Sainte-Magnance.
There is easy parking nearby, and a plunging view from that spot onto Sainte-Magnance village at the bottom of the straight stretch of the old Roman road which is now the D906.


Sainte-Magnance stands within the Morvan Regional Natural Park.
