Trip Planner: Europe / France / Normandy / Haute-Normandie / Seine-Maritime / Bonsecours / Basilique Notre-Dame de Bonsecours
On a site dedicated to the Virgin Mary, Basilique Notre-Dame de Bonsecours dates from the 1840s. However, pilgrims have come to this site to venerate her since the Middle Ages--first through a chapel here and later through a parish church that was destroyed in 1473 and again during the French Revolution. Eugene Jacques Barthélemy designed the current basilica in the Neo-Gothic style--the first example of this style in France. Its nave is flanked by aisles without a transept, and a tower is topped by a spire above the western portal. In front of the west facade, you'll find a monument to Joan of Arc. The interior of the basilica has the distinction of being fully painted, following the example of the Ste.-Chapelle.

Pretty church to visit if you are up near the Panorama for Rouen. There is also a nice monument for Jeanne d'Arc
Wonderful place to visit, the Basilique has heaters inside so its quite warm and comfortable, the glass paintings are masterfully painted.
Beautiful Basilica with its cemetery. Nice view of Rouen.Le places is not very well maintained, however, all indications are clear. You won't have problems for collect you the most "famous" graves. There is one side moving to "visit this space out of time".
Pretty Basilica, whose location is an added advantage. Near the cemetery of Bonsecours, the monument to the dead, the presbytery, the "Casino" of Bonsecours and the monument to Joan of Arc, its clear vicinity supply in terms of the largest number. Gothic style, it is is lace of stone inside and outside. For weddings or during the heat of midsummer, the porch is really highlighted.
