When you visit Montmorillion be prepared to be entranced by the town's rich architectural heritage. La Maison-Dieu, a hospital-monastery founded in the 11th century, houses the Saint-Laurent Chapel (12th C), the Octagon, a mysterious funeral chapel (12th C) is modelled on  the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, a tower of the 14th century is all that remains of the defences of the hospital. The Musée de la Tour, and Le Chauffoir where pilgrims came or refuge and warmth, the Grage des Dimes and the magnificent buildings of the 17th C are all listed buildings.

In the centre of town is Notre-Dame Church (11th, 12th & 14th C) which has a superb "Deploration" which is a listed monument as is the church itself, and as is also the fresco in the crypt showing the crowning of Saint Catherine of Alexandria.

Don't miss the Almond and Macaroon Museum in the town centre when you rent a holiday home in Montmorillon either! Interestingly, the clay mineral montmorillonite was named after Montmorillon after its discovery there in 1847.
