  • Sitting in the basilica under the beautiful statue of Our Lady, one is overcome by an enormous sense of peace. One can imagine that not praying enough, not setting aside time for church, not repenting...  more »
  • I had the idea of a monastery lost in the mountains in a beautiful site... What a disappointment to see this shrine any surrounded or rather overgrown by hotel buildings without any class. Once at the end of the road that leads to the sanctuary, the only interest lies in the beauty of the panorama that opens up to us. That the mountain is beautiful... Do not look back to see the sanctuary, you will only see a hotel for pilgrims in which these same pilgrims will find spoonfeed without class store, a restaurant or rather a refectory (menu "canteen" at € 14) and even a snack which proposed the day of our visit a dance party! There are so many places of interest to visit that we should not waste time to climb to our Lady of la Salette monastic.

  • We were on a pilgrimage to Notre Dame de La Salette yesterday, a dramatic mountain top sanctuary incredibly outstanding. The road is easily passable despite the altitude, the sanctuary and is very well served by inner rooms accessible, outdoor common areas, restrooms, bar and cafeteria at reasonable prices, all are helpful and kind.

  • Driving into a snowdrift whilst in a compact fog somewhere in the high before reaching the place and a successful return down the road. Yet, the next day, on a beautiful Sunday reaching, by the second attempt, the Sanctuary and finally an inspirational peace in absolute silence with devotional moments, that is possible only in rough winter. Thank you, be praised, my Lord!
  • Incredible. I couldn't believe how high up it was, the paved road turns steeply up into a dirt road and I'm thinking to myself, it can't be up here can it? It is, way up there in the mountains. The fact that huge tour buses drive up there every day is amazing to me, how they navigate the narrow switch back road so successfully is amazing to me. It's a beautiful place and very fitting for the Holy Mother of God to have visited here.
  • I Love everything about the shrine i've been going there sence i was a little girl and im now 38yrs old...
  • Onde Nossa Senhora apareceu e deu o alarde pros Apostolos dos ultimos tempos, esses tempos chegaram.
  • La Salette, a small town of 200 people about 50 miles south of Grenoble, was the site of reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1846. The Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette remains a minor place of pilgrimage today. The shrine of La Salette is located in a high alpine pasture at an altitude of about 6,000 feet, about 9 miles from the nearest town. Now easily accessible by car, bus, and taxi, the shrine operates a hospitality service with a range of accommodations. The mountain scenery around the shrine is spectacular and it is surrounded by a network of walking trails, making La Salette an ideal place for spiritual retreats and day hikes. The Basilica of Our Lady of La Salette was begun in 1852, completed in 1865, and designated a basilica in 1879. It is a large, rather austere church, with a facade flanked by two strong towers. Inside, the basilica's nave is bordered by two rows of Byzantine columns supporting the Romanesque vaulted ceilings. A mosaic of Christ crowns the apse. The transept has three medallions representing the stages of the apparition (the weeping, the message, and the departure). The basilica also includes a small museum documenting the history of La Salette. Outside the basilica, pilgrims can take a walking path leading to the apparition site, the "Valley of the Apparition." Bronze statues erected in 1864 depict the three stages of the apparition.
