The colours of the pillars etc may not not as pronounced or prolific as in the cathedral but this is a fascinating place. The display of St Radegonde's life (in about A level french standard) is good and to see her 6th century tomb is...More

A different style of church with one wide nave and no side chapels. It's all devoted to one Saint, a 6th century princess who established one of the first convents in the west. The chancel is raised and you can see the opening to the...More

I had the opportunity to attend a wedding in this beautiful and historic church which history dates back to the early middle ages. I could admire the frescoes and statues during the ceremony. There is a little garden next to the church.
