Well worth a visit, it really is spectacular. And when you read up on the history and realise how quickly it was built you can't help but be in awe. Highlight of the day- St. Teresa's arm bone in a box! (Seriously!)

Just a brief train ride from Paris - this is a beautiful town with many things to do and see with great places to eat. St. Therese is my wife's name sake so she has a special place in our lives.

This is an experience of a lifetime. Can't say anymore...you just have to go there! We ended up in Lisieux quite by accident as our car broke down a few kilometers from the town. What a wonderful accident! We'll never forget the visit.
