Baptistère Saint-Jean, Poitiers


The Baptistery of St John in Poitiers is claimed to be the oldest existing Christian building in France. Built in about 360 but much altered, it is worth half an hour (at least) of anybody's time.

For a plan of the building, there is a good link here, and for more information check out Wikipedia

Hello! Thanks for dropping by my blog. Sounds like you're embarking on a great adventure! My husband is actually from Poitiers - it's really pretty around there! Good luck with your move!
