Chauvigny is a warm city of Art with five châteaux dominating the Vienne River in the same rocky cliff, a truly unique site in Europe. Chauvigny is also an important site for Roman architecture with St. Peter’s Church Collegiate (12 C) famous for its sculptured chapels and painted columns, the Church of Our Lady (12 C) and the Saint-Pierre-des- Churches with its Romanesque wall pre-paintings. The archaeological and ethnological museum traces two thousand years of daily city life. In the upper part of the city, high ruins of the Barony Castle became the setting of Sky Giants, a show of flying birds, with birds from all over the world skimming over you. Enjoy Pass Discovery to visit 3 sites for the price of 2 available at the Tourist Office. Horse-drawn taxis, which trigger the medieval center, also let you see the city from a different angle. Discover the countryside around Chauvigny by taking a 9 km rail-bike on the railway track abandoned.
