Saint-Savinien-sur-Charente is one of the most picturesque villages in Roman Saintonge. Climbing a rock buttress on the banks of the River Charante the village affords nice views and provides some good places to stand.
The 12th Century church is spectacularly sited and affords wonderful views down the river and across the village rooftops – it also has some rather interesting “saintly” bollards all facing the church other than just one that faces away – Judas.
Took a photo from that same spot, overlooking the river some years ago. Missed the stone disciples, though.
