RomansA breath of fresh air


Small in size, but big in its dynamism, Romans lives to the rhythm of events organized throughout the year. Flea markets, theater shows are held there regularly. At the heart of vast natural spaces, come and take a breath of fresh air!

Saint-Symphorien Church

Founded in 1099, the bishop of Poitiers, Pierre II, gave the abbey of Saint-Maixent the church of Romans.

In 1798, the Romanesque church of Romans was sold as national property to Mr. PH Frappier for 4600 francs.

Then, the population increasing, in the middle of the 19th century, it was decided to build a new church for the parish. Due to a lack of funds, the original church was remodeled. Inside, don’t miss the 12 consecration crosses painted in blue and gold on the north and south walls.

The communal bread oven

While strolling in the commune you will find the communal bread oven. Still in working order, it is used during events organized in the town, especially during the autumn festival.
