  • It's very moving to imagine what could see these stones and these frescoes for hundreds of years. A home also erudite person as passionate, who will share the history of this place.

  • Very rare relic and worth visiting. Of magnificent frescoes and carvings/sculptures. Admission is charged, but ultimately, 3 euros for the conservation of this heritage for future generations, it is not price to pay.

  • One of oldest Baptistry in Europe, there is little to Paros that you see one as beautiful: moving!

  • 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 stroll in the old Poitiers will lead you naturally place de Gaulle in the baptistery passing by the Cathedral. Take the corner and its old mansions, but also of the different churches.

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