This church very close to the boucherie quarter, is not very famous, but it is really beautiful. The glass windows are richly coloured, the architecture is delicate gothic and it is quite with a devote atmosphere. There is a small entrance fee, but it is worth to go inside.

This church is accessible from a lot of different doors and once inside it is beautiful, calm and the stained glass is superb from pictures of people to an abstract of tongues around the font.

A lovely plce to visit and an even better one for a concert! Truly my favourite church! This is a beautiful place where you can enjoy peace and tranquility amongst the history steeped stones! It's a very popular church with the locals. A real working church with magnificent history. Great to just pop in for some calm in a busy... More

We stopped in for a mass service. Very old style with no opportunity to kneel! Many of the columns are not straight attesting to its age. After the mass the priest came to welcome us. The architecture of the old church is amazing! Some great history here.

Number 7 on the Red Walking Route, very interesting building, the columns inside are something to see. Not sure how they hold the building up? This Church is built more like a barn than a church which makes it very interesting from architecture point of view.

Really a nice church. Super art, grounds around the church are very nice. One actually enters by going thru the bell tower. Next to the Museum of the area in the old district down by the river.

This is a huge church, with an extraordinary interior: most of the ancient pillars that support the ceiling are leaning at a slight angle. We were lucky enough to witness a small choir singing at one of the side altars, and the acoustics were amazing.

We enjoyed walking around this church and the area around it. An old area with lots of history. Mass is still held here. "This is the site of an earlier chapel dedicated to the archangel Michael that was close to the roman Limoges-Saintes road. This gothic granite church is remarkable both for it's hall shaped plan and for it's elegant... More

Lots of things to see in this church It is an unusual design very square space. Lots of columns, many are not straight and I wondered how they held the roof up for so long. The lions are very old and weathered. They guard the entrance to the church rather well
