  • A little away from the city centre, this church is often forgotten. It goes after the great Notre Dame and the Cathedral St Peter; Yet it is a jewel of Romanesque art to be discovered.

  • This church is considered one of the monuments of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Very beautiful and grandiose, houses a beautiful organ, and has a chapel dedicated to Santa Terezinha. Under the main altar there is a beautiful golden object that contains the relics of Saint Hilaire. The image of St. Anthony in your interior is beautiful. On the way out, be sure to visit your garden, which features a beautiful tree.

  • 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.
  • Big Church, plenty of room inside the Church, ceiling loud, very beautiful.
