Peaceful church. Visited in the morning on the way to Paradise Beach and it was very serene. Met a small girl whose had come with her dad for a visit since it was her birthday. She was dressed in a beautiful dress and carried a box of sweets with her which she offered me when I wished her!

When I was here, we(wife and myself) took a full day tour from Tamil Nadu Tourism. The office is bang on Rocky beach. This was the first tourist destination that we covered.

The church is beautiful and is well maintained. The coloured glasses are so very fascinating.
It is very close to the Rocky beach and railway station.

Worth a visit, if you are in this town a must visit place

This basilica is very majestic, right at the end of M.G. Road and opposite to Railway Station. Very beautiful architecture. Each glasswork inside tells a story. The color of the glass is simply superb. Must visit place in Pondicherry.

This church will give a feel of medieval period with its built & structure. I visited it during the Christmas and it was simply amazing. well decorated and full of people.
