  • Beautiful church, with scenes in plsrs tables of the arrest of Christ until his burial in the Tomb but above all lies Agnès Saurel with her superb tomb for history fans over this visit is free

  • Huge buildings on shooting the city. The Church 4-pointed is original and unique to me, 4 spires in the sense of the length, not really of spires but some structured huge stone. Beautiful stones and streets, we loved walking but big problem: the rate of the two main monuments to 8.5 each, that we have neglected. We find this too much and I think it's a shame because it must be beautiful, but the fortress and the royal house will not have the honor of our visit. Do at least a rate grouped and revalued the price for national monuments.

  • Right next to the royal house, this great College deserves a break. The close of entry is superb, the collegiate church houses the tomb of Agnès Sorel, who was a favorite of King Charles VII. It is a beautiful building, and if you're in Loches, it really deserves a visit.

  • Lovely Church with interesting tombs and stained glass windows, some lovely large paintings too.
  • A visit of this church during the subsequent visit of the Castle and Dungeon we find the recumbent figure of the favorite of the King Agnès sorel, who had problems with the son of the future Louis XI King that his father will send for many years in the Dauphiné, where the latter learned his future job as King

  • ♿ 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...
