See also the Church of the village in front of the Basilica. A few cottage industries (including a wonderful SOAP) nearby.
Visible de loin à partir de la D5, on aperçoit les flèches de la Basilique dominant le village niché contre une colline boisée. L'histoire de la Basilique Notre-Dame de Montligeon est liée à l'Abbé Pa... more »Visible from far away from the D5, you can see the spires of the Basilica dominating the village nestled on a wooded hill. The history of the Basilica our Lady of Montligeon is related to the father Paul Buguet (1843-1918), founder of "expiatory work for the issuance of the neglected souls in purgatory". Installed on August 1, 1878 in the village affected by rural exodus, the Abbot Buguet strives to find work in the population. He founded a workshop of jersey, lace and a gloves. Projects failing, he founded the work cited above in 1884 which, over the years acquired an international reputation. In 1892, the small parish church of the 16th century could no longer contain the flood of pilgrims, the Abbot Buguet began the procedures for the construction of a larger building. The first stone was blessed on June 4, 1896. June 1, 1911, the new Church is honored a first mass. It is dedicated on August 28, 1928 and placed under the protection of our Lady liberating. It is the masterpiece of the Abbot Buguet I visited and that impressed me. A Gothic cross shaped Latin of 74 m long and 32 m wide, two transepts, three naves, 16 side chapels, and an ambulatory which serves the absidiales chapels. Two arrows of 60 m frame the façade. It's beautiful, it's great. I liked the sculptures, mosaics, stained-glass windows. This Basilica is superb. In the end of September, he had few visitors, but I imagine that during the pilgrimages, the building is filled quickly. Next to the Basilica, a very large building is designed to receive pilgrims and to meet all their needs.
une grande basilique au milieu des champs et de la forêt = assez surprenant - liturgie un peu "traditionnelle" more »a large Basilica in the middle of the fields and the forest quite surprising = - somewhat "traditional" liturgy
Great place, will go again
I can take my son who had gone through a tragedy. What a welcome, what recollection, what peace! A necessary break time that allows to resume life with serenity. Thanks to our Lady and thank you to you all: priest, staff and host service, brothers and sisters United by common prayer.
It's by proxy people, I know that it is a place where we can re-invigorate ourselves. Also, I would so stay d even more that my daughter died July 15, 2017 I have the prayer of our Lady of Montligeon.
Ideal for peace, hope and the rest of the soul.
