Just being there was a blessing. The tour is interesting and the nuns who are in the Saint's house seem to be praying for you as you enter the rooms. Just beautiful.

A must for pilgrims and at least very interesting for regular tourists. There's not much to the place. You're basically done in 30 minutes, but it's a really lovely place, and a must if you're on a St. Therese pilgrimage.

The wait here is due to the nuns giving each guided tour in your language and is well worth it. Especially stay an extra minute in Therese's room where the Virgin Mary's presence is abundant. Patronize them by purchasing something in the gift shop because...More
