  • Inspired according to certain sources of the judicial Basilicas of the Romans, the plan of this Church did enter the external columns of the Roman building within the building, giving it very many collateral. This church is certainly one of the most amazing and the most fascinating of the city of Poitiers, these monumental interior spaces are borrowing a great dignity. The ambulatory and chapels have seen the pilgrims of Compostela. Today I will post some pictures of the crib.

  • Because of the fires and rebuilding which have taken place over the centuries, the building is an interesting mixture of styles. Definitely worth a visit.  more »
  • It is remote from the centre, but like other churches, it's worth it: his frescoes, its ambulatory, its Romanesque art

  • Photographs cannot capture the majesty and scale of this 11th century church. Poitiers is a very beautiful and ancient town, the people are friendly, it's easy to navigate and there is so much to see.
  • Saint-Hilaire-le-Grand is one of the lightest, most elegant Romanesque churches in all of France. The slender columns rise up to create a great sense of verticality. Not to be missed. Poitiers has several very fine churches.
  • It is a place full of history, so there walls dating back to the 13th century and paintings from the 19 it is a place that mixes the art of both eras
