VIENNE Valley of the Frescoes
The Abbaye de Saint-savin is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, celebrated for its Romanesque and monastic architecture, rich history, and 11th-12th century mural paintings. The murals are the only ones of their kind in the world. The vaults of the nave alone comprise 460 square meters of murals that can be enjoyed like a rare and unusual storybook. To extend your trip, visit the other sites in the Gartempe Valley - known as the Valley of Frescos — like the Church Saint-germain d’auxerre in Saint-germain and the Church Notre-dame in Antigny, with mural paintings from different eras.
