  • The church dedicated to Saint John dates from the 13Th century. It is located at the top of the town next to the Château des Gondi. His earliest vestiges are the columns of the choir's span. It was rebuilt around 1490, after the city had been ravaged by the hundred years war, but the fire of 1530, which destroyed a large part of the city, severely damaged it. The work continues from 1548 to 1596 under the direction of Jean Chéreau. The Gothic style is respected in the lower parts, but the top of the Church is redone in Renaissance style, such as the false triforium and the upper verrières. The low barrel vault is remarkable and represents grounds for garden embroideries. The Church was frequented by St. Vincent de Paul, when he stayed at Joigny, as tutor to the children of the Earl of Joigny, Lord of Gondi. The building is classified as historical monuments in 1913. To discover with curiosity.
