  • the magnificent Basilica, situated on a hill/mountain is worth a visit, just when we were there last week, the Church was close (only open from Easter to all Saints ' day) despite the cold and a stormy wind was the hike to the top of the Hill very fun.

  • It's a place that we need to see absolutely. Especially in the summer, that we need good to admire the sun rays that pass through. The chapels are extraordinary. It is important to participate in the prayer time. The offices are sung by the monastic community of Jerusalem. The time very strong, spiritual. Actually, the car parks are paid, but why not park your car in a nearby village and ride a foot up to the Basilica. The landscapes are beautiful.

  • Magnificent Basilica, restful Chapel next to the place where Bernard of Clairvaux preached the second crusade. Unbearable racket of the town that takes advantage of the situation to extort motorists putting paying everywhere and parking with the parking on the settlement. I didn't have lunch in the restaurant of the city for faster collect my vehicle left in a lower village and went to breakfast somewhere else.
