The Mazedia agency is delighted to be able to communicate about the new application created for Saint-Savin Abbey, a UNESCO world heritage site located near the city of Poitiers in the west of France.

The Abbey offers their visitors with many activities such as concerts, exhibits, and other events.

Moreover, it is translated into 8 languages ​​and accessible to visitors with special needs. The media content concentrates on the history of the site, how it was built, the paintings and the storytelling linking the Middle Ages with present-day societies.

The starting point is the Abbey’s entrance, then the guided tour flow allows visitors to choose from different tours guided options, ranging from 30 minutes, 1 hour, and .. all the time you have available! The contents are all the same; the key is the extent of the knowledge included on each tour.
