Église Notre-Dame la Grande

Beautiful carved Romanesque facade
This church, located in the heart of Poitiers, has a wondrous carved facade and a rather fantastical interior paint job (added later) that's particularly beautiful toward the end of the day, as light streams in from the West. Right across from it is the Poitiers Tourism Center, where you can rent (or download for free) audio guides that take you on three excellent walking tours around town. Their paths are marked by colored lines, which makes it easy to follow along.
