Going inside on a sunny day you are struck by the amount of color coming in through the stained glass windows that soar three stories high. For some reason, they added neon color bars on the columns. They look completely out of place against the...More

Ran in here on a rainy afternoon as it's a big tourist attraction. Not a lot of information inside the church but it sure is beautiful. Mostly brick with some parts painted so not the typical French stone church. Fabulous atmosphere with the rear of...More

The church is free to enter although there is a charge for the gardens. Worth a visit though to both.

Lovely place with a strong historical Context. The tour at the crypts are worth seeing. I love coming to this place when there is a church service just hear the organ play. Can’t go wrong spending 30-60 min walking inside and outside the basílica.

The church is lovely: open, peaceful, simple. Very unusual altar containing relics from St. Thomas Aquinas.

We walked around the outside of the Church as we didn't really have time to go in. The architecture was stunning and to look at. From what i've read is that different parts of the church were built in different centuries so the architecture is...More

A beautiful treat for every sense. The church part is free.....and gorgeous, but it is worth the €5 to spend time in cloistered area

The courtyard, nice view of the Church of Les Jacobins. This place is different for typical French. The Art and building are mixed between Spanish and Roman type.
