Now it is a refuge for families in transit.
Relais sur le chemin de Compostelle dans le passé.

Le 178 is a venue opened for artists to host events, performances, concerts, screenings and any forms of creative dialogue with the local community. While Maison Gai Saber is dedicated to creation, Le 178 is a space for presentation and dissemination of contemporary art, music, performance and poetry. Le 178 is located on the route to Santiago de Compostela in the historical center of Châtellerault, Nouvelle-Aquitaine in a house dating back to 11th Century and classified as a historical monument. You have to your disposal the whole house - from the cellar to attic and the three stories in between.
We welcome exhibition and events proposals all year round. Contact us for more information.
