Lovely Church great atmosphere , beautiful statues and carving in the local tufo stone. Takes you back to medieval times, with the much worn slabs and ancient tombs

While the facade dates from the 17th century, the interior has Romanesque elements and is considered Gothic Plantagenêt style. The main building was constructed in the12th-13th centuries. It also has some beautiful stained glass windows and an impressive organ, which is often used for recitals The church is typically open from 9 to 6, and is lit up in various colored lights after dark. Entry is free and definitely worth a visit.

The white tufa stone gleams on the recently restored facade of the Eglise Saint-Pierre. The doors were open on Saturday morning during the market on the Place. We were glad we went in. A peaceful, beautiful space.

Many different styles packed in a relatively small church. A fast visit. Nice ancient city square with restaurants and a market. Saumur Castle is 5 minutes away on foot. Paying parking lot nearby.

Approached this beautiful church from the pedestrian path leading from the chateau. The detail on the exterior is exquisite. Inside, it is darker with some art works and beautiful stained glass windows. I lit a candle for loved ones and sat for a while to enjoy the quiet. I’d used a side entrance so when I stepped out of the main entrance I felt I’d stepped back in time – the timber framed buildings of the square are beautiful. A lovely spot in this pretty town. Eglise St Nicolas is another church worth a visit – the Joan of Arc statue in particular is worth a look.
