Overview

The St Nicolas church of Civray is a beautiful example of the romanesque art of Poitou. Its sculpted facade is worth a detour and you will be amazed by the colors of its interior paintings. A free brief document in English is available at the Tourist Office of Civray. An information board about the facade is situated at the corner of place Leclerc and an inside one explain the history of the church.

This a lovely and very old church with a painted interior. It is really worth seeing both inside and out. The architecture is stunning and the inside unexpected. It is really very much worth seeing if you are in the region.

Come on you English speaking reviewers .. I can't believe you missed this one ... What an amazing church both internally and externally ... the original facade ... Using the word "Stunning" doesn't do it justice... Well worth going out of your way to visit......More
