“Great area recently re-vampted!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The whole area has been given a recent face-lift and it's so typically French "café-culture".....while-away a Saturday morning here and immerse yourselves!!

“Marching through the Medieval”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Great opportunity to walk through time. The winding streets and places to stop with family and friends give a great perspective about what's important.

“Away from the central square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We visited the Cathedral on a Sunday morning and therefore there was a service on so we couldn't wander freely. Our approach from the main square in Poitier was down a long sloping
narrow road which we had to climb back up again afterwards. The exterior of the cathedral was
impressive although the interior left us cold with little character. I suppose we were spoilt having seen Notre Dame La Grande which was so unusual in comparison.

“All great to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

In Poitier all the best is in the City Centreville, and the cathedral quarter is great with a wide variety of shops and sites to see.
