    Unknown, Church St. John is best known for his side "looks" like the Tower of Pisa... It is true that this surprise. It's a nice inside, but it's especially outside that will grab the attention: each of the berries with a stained glass window is distinguished from others, with long grace and variety in stone.

A fine example of flamboyant art. It is also and of course a place of prayer.
