Has a good cathedral if you’re into that sort of thing.  Comes highly recommended by TV's EO Aquitaine.

Looked at that but not sure if it a single person thing.

Has a good cathedral if you’re into that sort of thing.  Comes highly recommended by TV's EO Aquitaine.

Seems to be quite a few cathedrals and churches in the area.

Poitier is twinned with Northampton - possibly not a recommendation.

Was there in the early to mid 90s.  Not an experience I want to repeat.
