Très belle église dans un petit village, où l'on sent l'influence du saint curé, Jean Marie Vianney, dit le Curé d'Ars. A visiter "hors saison", il y a moins de monde. Mérite le détour. more »Beautiful church in a small village, where you feel the influence of the Holy curé, Jean Marie Vianney, told the Curé of Ars. Visit 'off season', there are less people. Worth a look.
Magnifique par les formes et le travail de la pierre à l'extérieur, par les couleurs, la lumière, la richesse simple des décors à l'intérieur La forme de la basilique donne l'impression lorsqu'on est ... more »Beautiful by forms and the stone work outside, by the colors, the light, wealth simple sets inside shape of the Basilica gives printing when seated inside to be in a cocoon, surrounded, protected. The fact that the priest Jean-Marie Vianney lies inside the Basilica, visible to all, strengthens the feeling of protection and well be. I advise to start by visiting the Museum of wax on the life of Jean-Marie Vianney because he makes us know who he is, what he has been through and makes us "alive" for 6 euros admission. Then continue by the House where he lived and where the furniture and objects are preserved as they were. Access is free and open. Simply pass the door and move freely. A great feeling of confidence. So, when you get to the Basilica, it is imbued with the life of the priest which allows to enjoy and understand what can offer or reveal this place.

The body of the saint is preserved in a remarkable hunting in the Basilica in the Rotunda. In the Basilica an atmosphere of deep contemplation, under great domes of cruciate style. Also next to visit the old presbytery where is mentioned the simple life of the Holy Father, and who kept the look he had in 1859. In the chapel nearby, known as the heart is kept the heart of the saint in a beautiful reliquary. This site located about 10 kilometres of the road of the Sun is certainly worth the detour.
The road to the Basilica Shrine of Ars was not easy. Actually, I started my journey to Basilicas Shrine of Ars started from Seoul(Korea) in Aug. 2015. When i arrived at Lyon, but still the road to this Basilica was not clear. Thanks to Google map and lady met at a Hotel, I took a train to Villefranche-sur-Saône(from Gare de Lyon Part-Dieu it took only 22min) and took taxi(only 22 euro and it took only 15 min from the Villefranche-sur-Saône station). Mass at the Basilica was overwhelming and thanks to Lord, I could have mass intention for my friend. I have intention to visit this this Basilica again. If you wanna regular bus at the Villefranche-sur-Saône station, you have to keep in mind that the bus schedule is depend on the weekdays.
Khuong Van BinhWonderful place for those who want to relax spiritually. Really a good idea at all.
