  • The Saint-Hilaire Church was closed a few years ago to UNESCO World Heritage: the pride of Poitiers! The Socialist Mayor has left to build modern apartments just next door, devoid of tourist attraction: the shame of Poitiers! Nevertheless, the Church houses the tomb of Saint-Hilaire Le Grand, the author of a famous treatise of twelve volumes against the heresy of his time, the aryanism, in the 4th century a.d., which inspired Adolphe Hitler, particularly in the twentieth century. The Interior of the Church is very large and very imposing. There are the very large organ on which we always celebrated mass, to more than 10 meters above the ground. Finally, the bottom of the Church, very large, too, to see.

  • Say that we almost miss this church romance away from the city centre and stuck in the middle of houses. Beautiful inside and out.

  • A church with his religious community quickly grew on the tomb of saint Hilaire, famous Bishop of Poitiers of the IVe s. She became a collegiate church in the Carolingian era until its removal to the Revolution. The building of the 11th-12th century fell severely in ruin and was very heavily restored and redesigned in the 19th century. It is now a large Romanesque building and neo-roman of exceptional architectural quality which deserves a visit thoroughly.
