Notre-Dame-du-Bout-du-Pont (Our Lady of the End of the Bridge) Review

Walk into the old section of St-Jean-Pied-de-Port through the Porte de France, just behind and to the left of the tourist office; climb the steps on the left up to the walkway circling the ramparts, and walk around to the stone stairway down to the Rue de l'Église. The church of Notre-Dame-du-Bout-du-Pont, known for its magnificent doorway, is at the bottom of this cobbled street. The church is a characteristically Basque three-tier structure, designed for women to sit on the ground floor, men to be in the first balcony, and the choir in the loft above.
