Poitiers, a jewel of Roman Art
A visit to the city of a hundred steeples with OUIBUS is the chance to discover numerous diverse monuments. The Roman capital, Poitiers has an exceptional heritage which you can discover for yourself whilst exploring the city on foot. The historic city centre that Rabelais and Descartes crossed in their time is home to many a medieval gem, along the meandering Clain and Boivre rivers. You’ll be charmed by the finesse of the Romanesque sculptures of Notre-Dame-la-Garde dating from the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Continue your discovery with other wonders: the town hall, the church Saint Radegonde, the Hall of Lost Steps and the church of Saint-Hilaire the Great. All these mesmerising heritage buildings exist in harmony with the contemporary architecture that’s also present in this ancient Roman city. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to see the city centre, even from your seat on board the OUIBUS as you arrive! Experience and share some breath-taking adventures and thrills at the Futuroscope theme park. And afterwards, regain your strength with a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants of the city. Try the farci poitevin, a local pork and herb specialty that’s somewhere between pate and meat loaf. And if the season of Charentais melon is in full swing, you’re in for a treat!
