We proceeded further into Poitou, stopping for the town of Chauvigny. Its principal sights are on its hilltop, some castle ruins and its St. Pierre church.
View of Chauvigny hill, ruins and church

Entrance to ruins; note they are working on
propping up this wall...

Church tower and more ruins

Still more ruins

The hill is steeper than it looks

Exterior view of church and tower

On the inside, Romanesque, painted, barrel vaulting

Except in the two aisles, 4-part Gothic ribs;
nothing particularly exceptional until...
