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.

Wood is very present especially for the three galleries that historically are reserved for men. Presence of models of boats mixes if all the fishermen do not go to the confessional. Can't wait to come back on a day of Mass in Basque to feel the vibrations of this church where the wedding of Henry IV was celebrated.
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.
