  • Seen during the heritage days, we see the remains of the baptistery of the 5th century under windows, and all the recovered sculptures are exhibited. The structure itself has been changed to 11-12th and we can still observe the magnificent paintings.

  • During a first visit has Poitiers we couldn't visit this monument. It was open in this day of heritage day. This is a must see if you go through Poitiers! Beautiful architecture, conservation without excess, a place full of emotion and charm!

  • See Poitiers, this surprising baptistery which retraces the centuries, battles and architectures. We'd love to place where time stops. Very surprising...

  • 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.
  • very informative site. Baptistry of St. Jean at Poitiers. Entry fee: 3 euros per adult, 1 euros per child.

  • 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.
