Pîtres (medieval Pistres) is a commune in the Eure department in Haute-Normandie in north-western France. It lies on the Seine.

History[edit]

Historically, it had a bridge to prevent Vikings from sailing up the river to Paris. It was here that King Charles the Bald promulgated the Edict of Pistres in 864.
