  • There is a small charge, which seems flexible if like us, you have a large family. Worth it to see what is claimed to be the oldest christian building in France. There is a leaflet that explains everything. Well worth the walk from the centre of town if you are interested in history.
  • One of the oldest Christian buildings in France. It is the 4th century and has some interesting frescoes. It is worth €2.

  • An after - noon of strolling in the old Poitiers naturally Gaulle square to the baptistery takes you through the Cathedral. Enjoy local and its beautiful old houses, but also of the different churches.

  • Lovely building, pity exposure flow (since April) to alter the building. I pity especially tourists this summer who wanted to take the baptistery in photo with these large roots that emerge next door, it's really awful.
