    The only one of its kind in the world, Saint-Savin abbey, a flagship Roman monument for the Poitou area was listed by UNESCO as World Heritage in 1983. The surprisingly well-conserved rich paintings are rightly known as the “Roman Sistine Chapel”.
    The Poitou abbey, a jewel in the crown of Roman art in the Poitou-Charentes area is remarkable for the frescoes ordered by the Benedictine monks in this important site of monastic architecture. The paintings, dating back to the end of the 11th and beginning of the 12th century were saved thanks to the initiative in the 19th century of Prosper Mérimée, also general inspector for historical monuments at the time. Many works and restoration campaigns were henceforth undertaken to save the paintings. The church, added to the first historical monument list in 1840, still receives the careful attention of restorers.
