Poitiers, when romanesque art goes with amusement park
In the heart of the Poitou-Charentes region in western France, the beautiful city of Poitiers is waiting for you. It is located 100 km south from Tours and the world-famous Loire Valley’s chateaux, and counts a little more than 80.000 inhabitants
The whole region of Poitou-Charente is known for its multitude of religious romanesque style buildings. Poitiers presents many of remarkable examples of this beautiful architecture.
Among them, head the Notre-Dame-la-Grande’s church with its amazing sculpted facade, or visit the UNESCO listed Saint-Hilaire-le-Grand’s church, dating back from the 11th century. Several meters away from Notre-Dame-la-Grande’s church, you will discover another pearl of Poitiers’ cultural heritage : the "angevin gothic " style Saint Peter’s cathedral. If the cultural heritage of Poitiers is really rich, many other activities are available, such as the nearby Futurscope amusement park...
Whatever you do in Poitiers, you will enjoy this multifaceted and pleasant historic city.
