Lovely peaceful church. Not very central however within approx 10 minutes walking distance of the centre. Very near the Parc de Blossac so could visit both on same trip. Also this church should have english literature. Well worth a visit

It is worth the effort to find your way to this hidden treasure. The sense of space and light which unfolds when entering this ancient Church has to be seen to be appreciated. I have paid numerous visits and have always found something new.

This very old church is full of history and an important stop-over for the pilgrims walking down to Santiago de Compostella.

Not as old as we were expecting, c1800's, but nice all the same. Plenty of little streets to wander around. Watch out for the French drivers as it is not a precinct
