Charroux is known for its octagonal tower which is all that is left of one of the most powerful Medieval Benedictine abbeys, founded at the end of the 8th century by Count Roger of Limoges under the protection of Charlemagne. The large abbey church, (11th C) has a typical Carolingian architectural style. Civray also has a rich history and a castle, now in ruins; the church of St. Nicholas, is a masterpiece of the Romanesque architecture and well worth a visit. Both towns have everything needed for everyday life.
