Remarkably this was the most important town of the 1st Century AD and you can visit the remains of this era including the Arch of Germanicus, the Gallo-Roman amphitheatre and remains of the Roman Baths, as well as the archaeological museum dedicated to Roman Gaul. There also are numerous splendid churches including Saint Eutrope and the gothic cathedral of Saint Pierre. Saintes also has a good shopping area and a daily market.
