Mediolanum Santonum was a Roman town of southwestern Gaul, now Saintes. It was founded in about 20 BC in connection with an expansion of the network of Roman roads serving Burdigala. The name means "the central town of the Santones", the tribe that then inhabited the area; the town became an important center in the Roman province of Aquitania.
Saintonge is a small region and historical province on the Atlantic coast of France within the département Charente-Maritime, west and south of Charente in the administrative region of Poitou-Charentes. It derives its name from the ancient Gallic tribe of the Santones who lived in this area, around the current city of Saintes. The Saintonge was the center of the French Huguenots.
Saintes Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Saintes) is a former Roman Catholic cathedral, and a national monument of France, in Saintes. It was formerly the seat of the Bishop of Saintes, abolished under the Concordat of 1801, when its territory was reallocated, mostly to the Diocese of La Rochelle. The previous cathedral was built here in the 12th century. Little remains of this building apart from a Romanesque arm and the crossing of the transept. The cloisters date from the 13th century.
The Abbey of Sainte-Marie-des-Dames (French: Abbaye aux Dames de Saintes) was the first Benedictine abbey for women in Saintes in Charente-Maritime in France.
