  • We have gone for three hours with our two grandchildren of 8 and 10 years. We enjoyed the visit of the Cathedral and the Church in the historic old quarter of Poitiers. We found the houses half-timbered, are back in church and Cathedral both splendid. On the ground, in the alleys, you have three tracks (a blue, a yellow and a red) that leads you to historical monuments. Despite the gloomy weather we enjoyed the visit.

  • There is a cathedral at this location since Roman times, but the current building was rebuilt in Gothic style "angevin" from 1160 and until the 14th century. 100 m. long, 50 and high 30 (in the central nave), impresses even by its magnitude. The decoration of merit attention: Great Western porches carved (mid 13th c.), beautiful stained glass windows (including the exceptional stained glass of the crucifixion of the 12th), remarkable stalls of the 13th c. (the oldest in the country), paints murals (end 13th c., being restored), organ of the 18th century., etc. There really is a lot to see, and very beautiful. In short, a monument not to be missed.
