  • And the best is on the inside, the image of the Virgin Mary with Jesus Christ is wonderful, retains a bit of color, it is unique, I have not seen anything like.

  • We went with a guide which has given us all the relevant explanations. From the history of the basilica through the windows, rosettes,... If you pass by the Cité is a must-see
