Church of Saint Pierre d'Aulnay Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The Church of St Pierre cuts a solitary figure, rising among the cypresses of its old graveyard. A Unesco World Heritage site, this masterpiece of Poitou Romanesque built of warm-hued stone stands near the village of Aulnay-de-Saintonge. Noteworthy for its harmony of line and sumptuous decorative carving, it sits in serene landscape on the Compostela pilgrim route. Note the minutely detailed historiated archivolts of its main portal and on the south transept arch.
