“A stunning building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

This a is a beautiful building and very typically Romanesque for the area. I'm far from religious but was taken by the beauty of the building and it's calmness when you enter. If you're in Poitiers you must visit!

Massive place, good break from the heat. Another excellent church nearby was playing live organ music - excellent experience.

“Unique building in and out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Since it is a bit surreal it constitutes a gothic-romanesque 'ballo in maschera'. Sculpture on the facade, the structural bearings, the painted colonade, the confluence of different styles and elements render this building worth paying a visit to the town for

“Lovely church but some unsympathetic buildings nearby”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

There is quite a mix of architecture with the church itself & some of the surrounding buildings being really lovely but a strangely misplaced market building (which I though was a ridiculously large public loo building) right beside the church. Plenty of restaurants & bars nearby
