Église Saint Jean Baptiste de Meysse

The former church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste, located in the heart of the medieval town, is home to a rare immersion baptistery dating back to the Merovingian period (7th century). It is decorated with numerous frescoes and is one of the European Cluniac sites.
The sometimes winding streets of Meysse undoubtedly lead to the former Saint-Jean-Baptiste church. No longer a place of worship, the town council is committed to making it a dynamic place to visit, thanks to the many events it hosts. You can visit the building for a concert, an exhibition, or just out of curiosity. Listed as a Historic Monument since 1971, it boasts an extraordinary wealth of heritage. This is reflected in the paintings, architecture and results of the archaeological digs that have been preserved and presented to visitors. To visit this site is to witness a history spanning from the 7th century to the 21st century.
