“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

What a building, and what a site, with great views. Not to be missed. Was crowded, hard to park, but it was a Sunday. There is a council bus that takes you nearly to the top, but then it is a very steep climb from there. Better to get a private tour or drive yourself.

“Worth the effort.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The Grandeur and the style so different. Walking up the steps gives you a chance to appreciate the building but distress by the number of beggars when we were there .

“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We took the bus no. 60 from a bus stop on Cours Jean Ballard (near to the intersection with Rue Saint Saens). A ticket costs €1.50 but it is valid for an hour - this basically means that you can reuse it for the trip down if you are done within this time limit.

The basilica itself was beautiful, somewhat different from the other churches we have seen due to the unique maritime theme inside. It looks a bit like the Duomo in Siena from the outside with its black and white horizontal stripes.

You get a 360° panoramic view. And it's all free.
