Saint-Jean-du-Doigt The Essential
This little Côte des Bruyères village owes its name to a relic housed in its Flamboyant Gothic church (1513): part of the index finger of St John the Baptist. The parish enclosure is accessed through a 16C triumphal arch. To the left, the Renaissance fountain is dominated by God the Father blessing the baptism of Christ by St John the Baptist. The treasury has numerous reliquaries, chalices, a silver-gilt processional cross, and a crystal cylinder containing the famous relic.
