  • A mandatory visit to the crypt is needed so she is beautiful. Nice and relaxing place

  • Simply climb 305 markets that go up at the top of the Basilica to observe more about superb interior decoration consisting of mosaics and the vault which is 60 meters high. It's really impressive with a little courage on little continue to climb a staircase but it's worth it because it views of Lisieux. The entered € 1.50 will be at the top of the stairs!

  • The feeling is a little off between the so simple and profound expression of devotion of Sainte Thérèse (and also his family) and the splendor and Majesty of the place. Place dominating the city, imposing brilliant shining mosaics. Do not miss to dwell on the exemplary story of a deep-rooted faith speaking in the small things of everyday life. The crypt is essential and wonderful halo of blue light.

  • BLess my famiLy 2015
  • Very impressive church above the city.
  • Passed it on the train to Caen. Amazing sight basked in the glow of dawn.
  • Very impressive church. The crypt only has the remains of St Teresa's parents. Her specific body, lies elsewhere in the city and not on the grounds of the basilica.
  • Must see site when you visit Lisieux
