Had the opportunity to venerate the relic of the holy blood.
Tranquil, solemn location.
Even if you're a non-believer the building itself is worth a visit.

“An inspiration”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

I personally didn't visit the Basiliek, but some of the party did, and found it to be extremely moving. The outside of the Basiiek was beautiful.

“Nice Basilica”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
