Eglise Notre-Dame de Niort

Built from 1491 to 1534 in the flamboyant Gothic and Renaissance style on an old Romanesque chapel, the Notre-Dame church was remodeled and restored in the XNUMXth century, XNUMXth century and XNUMXth century. Placed on the Way of Saint-Jacques de Compostela, it houses the Saint-Roch chapel once dedicated to pilgrims.
It is the highest monument in the Deux-Sèvres department. The Gothic spire of its bell tower rises 75 meters high! It is said to be the work of the fairy Mélusine, half-woman and half-snake, who, surprised in her work, forgot to lay the last stone!

To see: the north portal, the large stained glass window of the Tree of Jesse, the Renaissance gallery and the large listed organs.
