  • A very ancient church, medium sized but contains a lot of history with beautiful stained glass and painted ceilings. Located in the heart of the old Poitiers village. Very quaint.
  • A truly inspiring and profoundly spiritual place. Fascinating for me because I discovered a connection between here and the 12thC Ardmore Cathedral in Co. Waterford in Ireland - near where I live. Adam and Eve.
