2 BASIL­ICA OF SAINT-SEURIN

As early as the 4th cen­tury, con­verts set­tled on the site of a large Gallo-ro­man necrop­o­lis where they built their first chapel. In the 11th cen­tury, the canons un­der­took the con­struc­tion of a large Ro­manesque build­ing, of which the porch, the chevet, the crypt and the base of the bell tower still ex­ist. Work con­tin­ued on the build­ing in the 19th cen­tury with the ad­di­tion of sev­eral chapels and a neo-ro­manesque frontage. Place des Mar­tyrs de la Ré­sis­tance
