Poitiers, as we found, is a special town, definitely worth visiting. The cathedrals are all historically important, and a must-see. The restaurants are fantastic -- one amazingly better than the other. It seems that you can't go wrong in your choosing. We were in town...More

It s a cathedral, so it s big, but After visiting all churchbuildings i would say this one is certainly not nr 1 to visit The inside didn't t impress me, felt very empty. The art inside is standard.
