  • Easy access, free parking next door. I went in December, was empty, was very well received by the sisters. They tell the story and there is an audio guide. Place simple but with an immense spiritual depth. There lived 1 Saint and a doctor of the Church, in addition to the sisters who were nuns. All well preserved, bed, toys, exciting! (There's no "tickets", but in the end they ask for a collaboration for maintenance, if you want to, and as you can) that is more than fair! Not to be missed!

  • Visit the House where lived St. Thérèse is the starting point of the different places that absolutely must be discovered to follow the path of his life. Very well maintained home feels well and one has the impression that it was still inhabited not so long ago.
