Basilique St-Seurin

ADD TO MY TRIP

This much-remodeled church might be a little more plain on the inside, but the history here is fantastic. The namesake saint's coffin lies under the altar, and a 7th century sarcophagus hides in one of the chapels in the aisle. If you can find the sacristan, have him open the 11th century crypt for you. There's also a 4th century Christian burial site underneath the church, but it's only open in high summer.
