Located on the Charente River, 76 km SE of La Rochelle and 26 km west of Cognac, the town of Saintes has an architecturally rich heritage. A major administrative and cultural center in Roman times, the town is dotted with relics that date from that period. Also of interest are its two Romanesque churches, the Abbaye-aux-Dames, on rue St-Pallais, and the Eglise St-Eurotrope, located near the ruins of a 1st-century Roman amphitheater.
