A beautiful church- so historic. The architecture is amazing. Take the time to walk around and enjoy the beauty of the church.

The Basilica of St- Jean-Baptiste is notable for the polychromed life-sized sculpture called "Mise en Tombe" in French, meaning laying in the tomb, representing of course Christ being laid in the tomb, surrounded by His mother and a number of followers. The sculpture is starling precisely because the figures are life-sized and very realistically sculpted. The church also has numerous other polychromed features, giving a clue to how dramatically colorful the Medieval cathedrals were when first completed, in contrast to the stark grey appearance most all of them have today, after centuries of abuse and neglect.
