  • Beautiful basilica, emphasize its stained glass windows. We organize free tours (only in French). Free access. There are no bathrooms. You can also visit the Tower, from which you get a beautiful view of the city. Access is free and at the entrance you can request a prospectus in Spanish.

  • A beautiful basilica without great ostentation. The thing not to be missed: climb up the Bell Tower (free activity) to be able to admire the city and its surroundings. With a beautiful view of the Castle. Have just the courage to climb the 135 steps!

  • I love this Basilica and I come here often. One day I went up in the Bell Tower (climb free, open from April to September) at noon, is I felt the Tower stagger by the movement of the Bell...! An amazing experience.
