These visits are free, but there should be some change to the House "at the pleasure".
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.
Hilary BasilIncredible. Really fascinating to behold. A fruit of holiness never dies he it continues to grow for everyone to see. Was blessed to be here
Myrtille CharmantePlace for all those who want to cultivate their spirituality. Ars is a lovely village. Interesting visits in the House of Saint Jean-Marie Vianney, the Church... Masses are regularly officiated. To experience at least once.
