“Impressive”

Sanctuaire Sainte Therese
Ranked #1 of 14 things to do in Lisieux
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2018 via mobile

Visited the basilica around 14:30 pm. Some tourists, who all behaved very well (what a difference when you compare that with the hordes that visit the Notre Dame in Paris), and quite a few pilgrims. We all more or less disappeared in the enormous church.
Nothing like the old Gothic churches but most of the windows, paintings, frescos, etc are beautiful, intriguing, and fitting.
Hopefully it has a calming effect on all visitors as it had on us.

Beautiful church with amazing views of the surrounding areas from the Dome. Simple explanation of the life of sainte Terese

Great to spend a few hours here in the basilica. A very peaceful and place of thought. Would definitely recommend the visit. The views from the domes are amazing but make sure you can achieve the over 300 steps, well worth it though!!

This is a stunning monument. Mostly Free of charge, except for the dome. The 300 steps are definetly worth it though, especially the inner dome; a magnificient view on the interior of the baselique.
Free parking space.
In short; a must see when you're around.

Free entry so definitely worth a visit. There is a 2 euro charge for adults (1 euro for children) to go up into the dome and up again to the top, but it is very good value considering the views of Lisieux and surrounding area. Quite a few steps though.
