Images of Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher


Saint-Aignan was built on the hillside along the Cher River. The Cher is by far my favourite river of the area and is well worth exploring.

Saint -Aignan lies at the Eastern edge of our region and is at the meeting of three provinces: Berry, Orléanais and Touraine.

As well as some splendid buildings, including its Renaissance château and its Romanesque collegiate church, it has a host of smaller buildings with fine and interesting architectural details, street furniture and winding ways. I’ve reproduced in a number of these in the slideshows below. I hope it encourages you to visit and explore this extraordinary place.
