Picturesque Poitiers is home to the second oldest university in France - a tradition which began there in 1431.

Visitors famously flock to Poitiers to take in the Romanesque church architecture, including Europe’s most ancient in the Église Notre-Dame-la-Grande.

The Battle of Poitiers was also fought in the city during the Hundred  Year’s War…a victory for the English.
