Basilique de la Visitation, Annecy
(3.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Standing as a tribute to an ancient monastery, Basilique de la Visitation holds the remains of two saints. Two bronze sarcophagi celebrate the life of François de Sales, a well-loved bishop, and Jeanne de Chantal. The church was built by renowned architect Alfred-Henri Recoura from 1909 to 1930. Pick up an explanatory leaflet, available in multiple languages, for information on the stained glass windows. Stop by the well-stocked gift shop for souvenirs. Note that if you're coming on foot, the walk up can be a bit strenuous. Plan to see Basilique de la Visitation and other attractions that appeal to you using our Annecy tourist route planner.

  • I have always dream d´y to one retired, not yet realized. Sunday mass is at 9:30, the sisters are attentive and listening. A place to focus on yourself and think if prayer is not part of your life.
