You don't have to be into religion to enjoy visiting this building. An earlier review headed "not a church fan" was, in my opinion, not at all helpful. Why write about somewhere if you haven't gone in? And churches do have bells..... Anyway, for those who do want to go in, this church is fascinating in a baroque sort of style. In other words, it is rather more flamboyant than the more traditional main cathedral in Poitiers. It is quite compact but it has character, style and is full of interesting quirks. If you can only gaze in bemusement at people's desire to produce a plethora of things to celebrate their beliefs then you will still get plenty of enjoyment from Notre Dame le Grande. Don't miss the superb carving above one of the outside doors (round the side from the main entrance).
