  • I went toLisieux to visit my spiritual saint and friend, St. Therese of the Child Jesus. This was a dream come true. The basilica was just awesome, jaw dropping! It is few minutes walk from the train ...  more »
  • Very nice monument in which it's good to stroll. He can't forget the way of the cross which toured the Basilica and explains the steps at the end of the life of Jesus. A special mention to the crypt where it is good to gather (rather more intimate than the Basilica itself).

  • Devout Catholics will need no explanations, they will be very familiar with the story of St. Theresa, the Little Flower. This is her church. Plenty of things to see. Lots of exhibits around the church...  more »
