how can you put to words a feeling so strong this church evoked? its beauty lies in its simplicity and its attraction in the easy way the black virgin is so accessible. The feeling of peace and divinity in this place left me weeping silently and the charm in its architecture left me speechless......its a place of pilgrimage for many and now i understand why.....

This church holds the remains of 2 saints who arrived in 45 AD! Birthplace of Christianity in France according to the local priest. The bones are in a trunck over the alter and lowered 3 times a year. Pretty inside the church and it can be viewed for free.

We loved it.. especially climbing up the round narrow stairs to the top. Once up there, the view of the city and the photo angles are great !

Really interesting relics in this church located in the centre of town.

Take the climb onto the roof (€2.50) well worth the effort for the review and the unique, roof-straddling experience :)
