Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Allier

Once fortified city Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule developed around an ancient monastery which takes its name from a young slave named Porcianus. The wine city reveals throughout its streets its architectural secrets around the huge ship that is the Abbey Church of Sainte-Croix. Both provocative and mesmerizing, the city will charm you.

Free tours of brochures are available in tourist offices.

In summer, the tourist office you discover "differently" this characteristic city through thematic tours. Ask for your brochure and the program!
