Travel Tips for Poitiers

Walk Around the Baptistry of St.-Jean (1)

by hquittner

This is the oldest Christian building still extant in France. It was built in the middle of the 4C. Originally it consisted of a rectangular narthex or atrium connecting to a similar room with a baptismal pool. Preceding these were two small rooms for disrobing, one for each sex. It was built over foundations of a previous structure destroyed by the barbarians in 276. In the 6C after Visigothic damage, rectangular apses were added, giving it a cross shape. In the 10C, baptism by immersion was abandoned, the pool was filled in , the dressing rooms eliminated, the atrium was given a polygonal shape and rounded absidioles were let in the north and south walls. Above on these two walls are Merovingian (6C) flat carved capitals on flat pilasters and a circular vegetal stone decoration.

Go Into the Grand Hall (2)

by hquittner

The Grand Hall (Salle des Pas-Perdus) is part of today's Palais de Justice. It was part of the original palace, used for grand ceremonies. Charles VII met Jeanne d"Arc here for the first time. It was built in the early 13C. The magnificent set of three fireplaces and the window treatment were ordered by Jean, Duc de Berry ( he died in 1412). (The outer side is seen in the previous Tip). Above the mantels is a fine balcony. The other walls are blind arcaded with different archings. The ceiling is wooden vaulted. As you can see the room leads to the law court chambers.

MY CITY

by raziel1

So here we are, That's Poitiers!

What to tell about this? If you go in city center, just look the buildings to realize that's it's an historical city, full of museums, churchs, cathedrals,... if you're interested in history, Poitiers is a very good place for you, Don't miss the cathedral "Notre Dame La Grande" in summer evenings, it's very nice (the original colors are reproduced by a system of lights), and of course The Futuroscope in the periphery of Poitiers, it's good croack but just once, it's very dear!! What else, Actually it depends of you, if you want more details, just post me a mail, I'll tell you what you want to know.
