Trip Planner: Europe / France / Nouvelle-Aquitaine / Pyrenees-Atlantiques / Basque Country / Saint-Jean-de-Luz / Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste
Though appearing simple from the outside, Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste features a gilded wooden altarpiece that's so intricately carved, it's been declared a historic monument in its own right. King Louis XIV also married the Infanta Maria Theresa of Spain here, making the church a national historic monument, too. Wander through the church, parts of which date back to the 15th century, to see the many carvings. The altarpiece alone includes statues of 18 saints and representations of the Holy Spirit and God. With our online itinerary creator, Saint-Jean-de-Luz attractions like Église Saint-Jean-Baptiste can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Visite avec petit garçon de 22 mois. Même les personnes pas fan des lieux de culte devraient y aller. Elle est vraiment jolie et atypique. Agréable cette pause au frais pendant la canicule! more »Visit with 22-month-old boy. Even people not a fan of places of worship should go there. She's really pretty and atypical. Pleasant this cool break during the heatwave!
Beautiful Church. Incredibly ornate inside. Loved the story behind the bricked up entrance. Remember to put a euro in the box to light up everything inside...
Wonderful church .was a great sight. Sadly people were taking photos inside. Which rather wound me up. Would go again hopefully more thoughtful people in there.
