  • The Basilica is kitsch, but far from ugly. What we can see more upsetting is the adjacent home of the Holy curé, where he has known despair and joy, relief and elation. A place to visit based on the beliefs of each person but, in any case, very poorly indicated on GPS and others. It is best to prepare his journey from a nearby town, if it comes to the individual car.

  • The history of the "Santo cura de Ars" is surprising, the less interesting. Visit to the Basilica is worth, but it is recommended you have read about this man and know the impact which took around the world from this village in the French countryside.

  • Incredible . Really fascinating to behold. A he fruit of holiness never dies it continues to grow for everyone to see. Was blessed to be here
  • This Basilica is not large but is very lovely to see. The paintings on the walls show the death of St. Philomena who was martyred about the age of 14 years. Also in the Basilica you will see the incorrupt body Holy Cure of Ars ( St John Vianney ) in a glass reliquary. Beside the basilica is the Chaplet ( Shrine of the Holy Cure's Heart ) that has his heart.
  • Amazing privilege to visit John Vianney!
  • 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.
  • Wonderful! Much peace! Feel the presence of God in each place. Beautiful testimony of St. John Mary Vianney
