Church of N.-D.-la-Grande

Recommended
This typical Poitou-style Romanesque church has a 12C façade packed with animated sculpted decorations. On summer evenings and during the Christmas holidays, the illumination of Notre Dame la Grande recreates the medieval colours of the superbly restored façade. The 15min polychrome show harks back to the tradition of painted churches, highlighting for a moment the scenes from the Old Testament sculpted in stone.
