Discover The historical centre of Surgères France

The historical centre of Surgères is bursting with references to the town's Middle Ages past, including the following highlights:
- The medieval ramparts, which form an ellipse with a 600m circumference.
- The Romanesque church of Notre Dame de Surgères, which was built in the 11th century by the Vendôme abbots under the orders of Hugues Maingot. It has a highly ornate façade on three levels and a funeral crypt located beneath the apse.
- The Renaissance Gate.
- The last tower of the château. It is known as 'Tour Hélène' (Hélène's tower), and was thus named after Hélène de Fonsèque, who was one of the fine ladies of Surgères and the subject of Ronsard's 'Sonnet pour Hélène'.
- The 18th century seigneurial dwellings.
