“Nice Basilica”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Looks really nice & the vitraux are amazing.

It is a small church, but really nice and beautiful.

Dont go to the museum, it isnt worth it, Just visit the basilica!

“Moving service”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

When we arrived it was closed but as we came back there was a service during the Holy week which had the Holy Blood on view, and we attended a short service and were given the opportunity to place hands on the capsule of the Holy Blood. Whether you believe it or not you could not help but being moved.

Reviewed March 11, 2013

The Basilica was opened and free for visitors. It took us good hour to go around and admire the sculptured, pictures and architecture.

“Beautiful little church”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Small, quaint and very serene. Beautifully kept. A must see if you are in town. The painting on the walls was very well preserved. It was a great place to sit and take it all in.

“Fabulous! Don't miss this little gem.”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

The interior and exterior decoration is exquisite, tucked away in the corner of the Burg. The atmosphere inside is wonderful as you gaze at the wonders of the decorations all around you.
