“Impressive”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

From the outside very attractive, late renaissance with a very high tower. Some people may find the inside overdone, extremely decorated, not exactly what you may call sober. But then, in its own right its wonderful and reminds one of certain Indian temples.

“The Chapel of the Apparition”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

The organ in the transept is enormous, but the most beautiful part of the Sanctuary is the baroque Chapel, built on the spot where the Apparition took place. As other people have said, it's moving to hear Mass celebrated there, whether or not the choir is singing. The red train trundles past the church, which is fun to see, and seen from there the mountain tops are spectacular.

“Check it out”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

As many reviewers have reported, this church doesn't look too unique on the outside, but once inside, you will be amazed. It is quite impressive. Try to catch a service going on so that you can experience the lovely sounds of the choir and the huge church organ. Great church bells too! (lots of bells!) Note-one of the tunes played regularly by the church bells sounded to me like "Blister in the Sun" - is that possible!?

“Beautifully maintained”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We arrived during mass and a large crowd was gathered. The volunteers and nuns were very caring and kind and the mass was deeply moving.
