Another landmark building in Saintes is the Abbaye Aux Dammes. We visited the church which is a small and beautifully designed Romanesque masterpiece.
Romanesque design is complemented with sculpted columns and capitals. We walked around Abbaye aux Dammes after visiting the Arch of Germanicus close by. As we walked the weather deteriorated, heavy clouds formed over us, and the interior of the church was dark despite its coat of whitewash.
