Fodor's Expert Review Notre-Dame-du-Bout-du-Pont

St-Jean-Pied-de-Port Religious Building/Site/Shrine

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 stroll 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 Gothic Rayonnant doorway, is at the bottom of this cobbled street. Built in the 12th century and designated a church in the 13th century, it is a characteristically Basque three-tier structure.
