“Peace and tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Amid the hustle and bustle of the town, a place for appreciation and reflexion. Outstanding architecture and beauty of a distant age.

“Cathedral of St Pierre Angouleme”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We came upon the Cathedral whilst walking Les Remparts. It was a very hot day and the cool interior of the Cathedral was most welcome. From the façade with its intricate stone carvings and tympanum one would never guess that the inside of this spectacular Cathedral would be so filled with light. It was truly an awe inspiring place of worship, with the largest crucifix I have ever seen. The domed ceilings, the statues and the organ were all works of art. Do find time to visit if you can.

“beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is a magnificent example of creating an impression in an already stunning location . In the early summer sunshine the building seemed to shimmer and glisten in much the same way as Sacre Coeur does in Paris. This is just one of many amazing buildings in the old city poised on a hill top with views of lovely Charentes scenery.Do visit!

“A quiet and peaceful refuge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Worth popping in - spare but attractive interior with high domes and a tower dominating the exterior.
