Eglise Saint-André de Niort

  • EGLISE--Butterfly-Tea--4

Proudly erected on the highest hill of Niort, the church of Pierre-Théophile Segrétain, the first architect of the historical monuments of Deux-Sèvres, gives itself the appearance of a cathedral with its two arrows of 70 meters high.
Present since the 11th century, it will experience the wars of Religion, the Revolution before being entirely rebuilt in the 19th century in the neo-gothic style.
At the end of the seventeenth century, the church of Saint-André was said to be “the most beautiful and largest in the province” and also historically older than Notre-Dame.
During the Revolution, largely destroyed, it was de-adapted and called the «Temple of the Mountain».
In 2015, it was added to the list of Historical Monuments by the same builder as the Church of Saint-Hilaire in Niort.
