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.

Lovely peaceful church. Not very central however within approx 10 minutes walking distance of the centre. Very near the Parc de Blossac so could visit both on same trip. Also this church should have english literature. Well worth a visit

It is worth the effort to find your way to this hidden treasure. The sense of space and light which unfolds when entering this ancient Church has to be seen to be appreciated. I have paid numerous visits and have always found something new.

A really beautiful building, one of many in the city. No guides in English, but it is possible to understand a good portion of the guides in French.

This very old church is full of history and an important stop-over for the pilgrims walking down to Santiago de Compostella.
