  • Unusual by having two pyramid-shaped domes above the nave. Agnes Sorel's tomb. A bit gloomy but interesting side chapels and lots of history  more »
  • A beautiful church mixing several styles: Roman and ghotique. There is a sarcophagus of Agnes of Louis VII's favorite beauty whose representation is 99% realistic after the words of doctors who made scientific reproductions from bones.

  • A church in the unusual architecture. Inside, the tomb of Agnès Sorel, a favorite of Charles VII with a beautiful statue in marble top. A visit during the tour of Loches.

  • ♿ There is a ramp (see photo) for the elderly and disabled that is located at the corner of the collegiate church and the St. Louis Garden (take the Pactius Street on your right when you are facing the porch of the collegiate church). Access could be improved however. 😕 our photos 360 ° are taken with a Ricoh Theta S kit (loan from Google StreetView! 😊). That I liked to do spiritual strain for a while. Also bold architecture as it is atypical of his quadruple conical roof of tufa stone is a tourism characteristic to contemplate. Choice since "the Vicariate", St. Louis and the terrace of the "rectory" gardens... This beautiful collegiate church based on Carolingian foundations, but historical uncertainties remain for greater seniority, "Merovingian" type. A campaign of excavations initiated in the Citadel, mainly to the royal house, 2 years, may be able to enlighten us with certainty on the occasion of archaeological surveys in the vicinity of the House and the church building...
