  • The antiquity of the place and the purity of architecture make this emotional place. Understood how some buildings around were able to be authorized. Damage

  • Small church built on top of a Roman temple in 5th century. Possibly the oldest church in Europe. Has a great selection of ancient sarcophagus on the floors and painting on the walls. Well worth a loo...  more »

  • 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.
