Let yourself be guided in Montoire-sur-le-Loir take the discovery trip. In the space of a one hour stroll you will discover the main monuments of the town: the Augustin convent founded in the 11th century, Saint Laurent church with its magnificent stained-glass windows, the Renaissance house, Saint Gilles chapel, well known for its frescos, among the major romanesque paintings in France.
Our favourite: Saint-Gilles chapel, a romanesque chapel from the late 11th century with early 12th century frescos representing Christ in majesty. This building was also the priory of the poet Pierre de Ronsard. A full-scale reconstruction is on view at the Cité de I’Architecture of Paris.
