Saint Just Basilica

Recommended
Founded in the 5C, the present-day buildings mostly date back to the 14C, when the two earlier basilicas were linked together by a central nave. Its facade is decorated with a beautiful rose window, a bas-relief and busts in bronze, and is dominated by a robust bell tower decorated with salvaged Roman columns and the statue of Saint Just. Inside is a beautiful 12C mosaic.
