St.Just Church of Arbois

Interesting
It is worth making the trip to see the bell tower of Église St Just (12C-13C): it looms over the town at 60m high (209 steps to climb) and culminates in a bulbous dome and a campanile with carillon. The aisles of the church are separated from the narrow nave by a fine series of semi-circular arcades and pillars. There is a lovely Madonna and Child (late 14C) and pulpit (1717); the chancel has a flat chevet and a large bay featuring the 12 Apostles. The organ (1728) is classed as a "Monument Historique".
