Poitiers, the regional capital of Poitou-Charentes, lies on a hill with the Clain and Boivre rivers flowing nearby. It features more than 80 recognized monuments, which form part of its 2000-year-old past. Poitiers was the site of the Battle of Tours in 732, which stopped the advancing Moors and changed the course of history. The city is strategically placed by the A10 motorway, midway between Paris and Toulouse. In the center, there are some lovely churches, which are superb examples of Roman and Gothic art, and these stand alongside townhouses, public and modern buildings, to form an elegant and varied environment. The city has two Enterprise branches; one at Poitiers train station, which is very central and close to the main attractions, and the other at Poitiers Airport, to the northwest of the city center.
