Nestled in the bottom of the valley, surrounded by wooded hills and dominated by the chapel of the 12th-century Vauguillain castle, the burg of Saint-Julien-du-Sault is made up of picturesque alleys at the foot of Saint-Pierre collegiate church, a remarkable building from the 13th and 16th centuries that houses a beautiful set of glass walls and an extraordinary organ from 1568 which has been restored recently.
In the town center, beautiful timber framed houses show the rich past of the city. One of them houses the Museum of Cultural Heritage, in which the yesteryear life and the old trades are evoked through faithful and living reconstitutions.
An imposing corner post from the 16th century can be found in St-Julien. If the town has a rich inheritance, its present is also remarkable thanks to its various equipements, services, implementation of numerous shops and industries and the great associative life that make Saint-Julien a very pleasant town to live in.
