La Trinité Church (20c)
A rare example of religious architecture in the 30s, La Trinité basilica is richly decorated, characteristic of the creative revival between the two World Wars.
Saint-Saturnin Church (15c-16c-17c)
This parish, one of the oldest in the city, was the centre of a significant worship of notre Dame des Aydes, the city's patron, whose memory is much in evidence in the numerous commemorative plaques around the church.
Saint-Saturn Aître (16c)
A former 16th century gallery cemetery, the aître retains traces of its original vocation in a "danse macabre" adorning its capitals. It now houses the city's gem collections.
Saint-Louis Cathedral (10c-12c-16c-17c)
The former Saint-Solenne church, which became the Saint-Louis Cathedral in 1697, is chiefly a 17th century Gothic church, built on older foundations. In 2000, it was endowed with a series of contemporary stained glass windows designed by Jan Dibbets.
Jacobins Convent (15c-16c-17c)
The Dominicans settled in this district in the 13th century, thanks to a donation from the Comte de Blois. Their buildings, decimated by the destruction during the Revolution and the building of new roads, now house the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle and the Musée d’Art Religieux.
