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.
