“Et ça monte à combien ces petits engins-là ?”

The lady in front of the abbey

After many adventures that led Tom to fly, sail on the sea, speed through the medieval streets of Chauvigny or crash on the golf course, he finally arrived at his goal, the abbey of Saint-Savin.

The young man arrived, to thunderous applause but somewhat dishevelled, in the famous building where the Guerliguet is also found, reminding spectators not to hesitate to call him when passing through the Vienne. Advice that many will certainly not follow. “Beware of pitching”!

Abbey of Saint-Savin

Built in the 9th century, Abbey of Saint-Savin is a Unesco World Heritage Site and one of the most remarkable sites in the Vienne.

Fleeing Macedonia in the 5th century, Savin and Cyprian, two brothers converted to Christianity, went into exile on the banks of the Gartempe. Martyred and beheaded, Savin was buried by priests not far from the town that now bears his name.

Relics of the two martyrs were discovered three centuries later. A church was then commissioned to store the precious artifacts. Expanded over the centuries, the abbey of Saint-Savin was able to benefit from the support of many patrons anxious to find salvation for their souls.

Set on fire by the Black Prince in 1371, devastated by the Huguenots in 1562 and 1568, partially dismantled in 1600, struck by lightning in 1820, the abbey has stood firm through time.

Restored and classified first locally, it was included in the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 1983. Today it welcomes many visitors, notably for its carefully restored paintings presenting The Creation and the Fall, The Story of Abel and Cain or The Story of Noah.
