Basilique de la Visitation, Annecy

(3.6/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • The Basilica nestles at the highest point of the old city, you can go on foot or by car. At night, the Basilica is very well highlighted. Inside, the massive marble columns and its freqques are sumptuous. A must see.
