Saint-Pierre-des-Corps is a commune in the Indre-et-Loire department in central France.



Located on the eastern edge of Tours, it is a major hub in the French railway network, connecting the LGV Atlantique, used by high-speed trains traveling from Paris to Nantes, Bordeaux, and Toulouse. The station at Tours itself is a terminus station through which trains cannot pass, so trains that do not terminate at Tours tend to avoid it entirely, leaving Saint-Pierre-des-Corps as the principal long distance station for the entire metropolitan area.
