Chapelle Ste-Radegonde

Church in Chinon

Built into a cave above and 500m east of town, this half-ruined Romanesque chapel – constructed around the tomb of a 6th-century hermit – is noteworthy for its 12th-century Royal Hunt fresco. A staircase descends to a subterranean spring associated with a pre-Christian cult. Affords panoramic views.
