Overview

Located in the heart of the historic part of Angers, the Collegiate Church of Saint-Martin is one of France’s most well-preserved Carolingian monument. The Collegiate is considered a major building in the history of architecture in the West of France, and is now property of the Conseil général de Maine-et-Loire. After 20 years of restoration, the Church stands as a cultural and touristic must-see in Anjou.

Very nice. Fairly typical stone work for the area and time period but nice feel to the place. If you are passing it is worth a look and cooler on a hot day.

The building is very simple, beautiful, and it whole history has been reconstructed, very interesting. There several exceptional statues which can be seen through out the building. The excavations below the main building are well worth a visit

Dating back 15 centuries, this church has been meticulously restored. Although no longer used for services one can appreciate its structure and architecture. There are choice examples of statues on display when the space is not being used to hold concerts.
