“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Very impressive building and it is not overcrowded. you can explore the basilica and surroundings with your own pace.

It is highly recommended to try the distant spot (2-3 miles away) to see how magnificent the scenery with the basilica is!

“Wrong address for Basilica”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

The address for the Basilica is actually for the Carmel or sanctuary. This is much smaller. The Bascilica is up the hill follow signs for basilique where there is parking.

“Stunning”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The Basilica is huge and stunning. The minute you walk through it's door your breathe is taken away. The workmanship, colours and decor are beyond belief. We have visited here a number of times and never fails to amaze. There are always worshippers and numerous lit candles of remembrance.

One of Normandie's must sees.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This church is beautiful. The crypt is stunning. Beautiful artwork. Unfortunately the main body of the church was being repaired with scaffolding up but is still well worth a visit

“Worth a major diversion”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Church itself is stunning but outdone by the crypt which has art nouveau elements. For a country fast losing its catholic faith there is a real sense of devotion amongst pilgrims and locals. The other sites connected to Theresa are similarly worth seeing. Trip to the dome is worth it for the view and to see how the church exterior belies a rather poor quality skeleton
