Civray on the banks of the Charente has been a busy centre of commerce since Roman times.

The town is built around the romanesque church of Saint-Nicolas( 12th C  ). The façade of the church has many sculptures, including the impressive and Wise and Foolish Virgins .

The old part of the town shows the administrative importance of Civray in pre-Revolutionary times when the town was an important administrative centre.  The l'Hôtel de la Prévôté, on the tourist route,  is an example of such a building.  

You can also enjoy a panoramic view of the town and church from the ruins of the fortified castle. Civray is a holiday destination, and it has several interesting paths along the Charente river.

Accommodation : hotels, camp sites, bed and breakfasts, and chalets.

Local Markets Tuesdays and Fridays, fair first Tuesday of the month.
