Here, heritage is on show to all
Châteaux, Romanesque churches, museums, interpretation sites …
you’ll be impressed by the wealth of privileged sites where history, nature and culture mingle. Starting with such jewels in the crown as the church of Aulnay-de Saintonge or the royal abbey of Saint-Jean-d’Angély, both figuring in UNESCO’s St James of Compostella World Heritage programme.
In this cradle of Romanesque art, churches offer an amazing variety of ornamental sculpture. Châteaux, such as Dampierre-sur-Boutonne or Authon-Ebéon are redolent of a history-filled past.
