Basilique Notre-Dame de Bonsecours, 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.

    This Basilica is simply outstanding. Its interior paintings and its stained glass windows are worth the look. A must-see!

    The outside is almost banal. Beautiful view of the Valley. Is especially true for the richness of the interior decoration and stained glass which alone are worth the trip!

    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.
