Lovely church to visit if you are in Amboise. Some really impressive stone masonry, stained glass windows and overall ambiance. There is a really useful guide in several languages. Top tip is to make sure you turn the lights on and allow your eyes time...More

Although the view of the town and chateau from the steps of the church is very impressive, the church itself is a bit of a disappointment. Very gloomy inside, and although there was obviously interior lighting, it wasn’t on when we visited. Consequently it felt...More

Quite close to the centre of town and worth popping into if only to see the magnificent carved Romanesque capitals. These include a female acrobat doing a handstand, Jesus rescuing a lamp from brambles, and all sorts orange animals.

In the heart of this city, it's worth stopping in to take a look at this old church. Not as grand as some others, but still interesting and quite beautiful.

The church is nicely located on the hill but inside it is not very impressive. It is pretty dark without too much decoration. Entrance is free.

We stopped in here to avoid an afternoon downpour. I found a written guide in English at the entrance which was most welcome as I find a lot of attractions in France don't provide translations. It has an very old history (back to 1100's -...More

The church was closed when I visited, so I can't speak about the interior. But the outside is worth a walk-around, and the site offers a nice view of the city.

It was nice that they had a brochure in numerous languages that you could borrow in order to learn more about the history of the church and information on the windows, sculptures, organ, etc. A great church to easily see the different architectural types over...More
