  • This Basilica begun in the 1930s and completed after the second world war is an architectural originality in the Region. I was gripped in particular by the reliefs of the way of think but also by the overall atmosphere that emanates from such uune architecture. Not to be missed. It's kinda the Sagrada Familia of Blois.
