The city of Poitiers is dominated by the outstrand morehing arms of the Notre Dame Des Dunes (Our Lady of the Dunes). The construction of this magnificent statue was ordered in the year 1875 under some tumultuous political and religious context. This Catholic Church witnessed two horrific events, namely, the defeat of Napoleon III against Prussia and at the dawn of the Third Republic. In 1997, the city bought the statue from the diocesan association to carry out some restoration and maintenance work. Over the years, the religious conflicts have vanished and visitors love visiting the place which is free from all of the political drama.
