Saintes

This charming town on the Charente River was an important regional center in the Roman era. The Arch of Germanicus, a triumphal Roman arch, can be seen on the riverbank, and nearby is one of France’s best-preserved Roman amphitheaters. Built in 50 C.E. it held up to 15,000 spectators. The town was also a stop on the route to Santiago de Compostela, and the 12th-century Church of Saint-Eutrope was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its history as a pilgrimage site.
