Sanctuaire Sainte Therese reviews
Of the several twentieth-century religious shrines I have visited, the Sanctuaire Sainte Therese is the most tastefully done. That is, its decoration is not excessive and its mosaics and paintings...

This is a modern religious building - built in the 20th century - to honour St Theresa. The decoration internally is from the early 20th century and personally I find it too cold and stylised. There..... more

One of the most beautiful basilicas I have ever seen!! It is well worth the extra walk up the outside backstairs to the stations of the cross. That you will find the burial site of St Therese's parents.
Few people still know about this holy place and for many it is still undiscovered ( I had a small trip from Paris to Lisieux by Train for one day) . This building is about a hundred years old and Pope John Paul II visited it for the first time. The type of building is a combination of modernity and traditional architecture with granite stones and paintings, as well as a large dome with the ability to reflect sound in the centre of building, At the top of the hill, beautiful and quiet and easy to access (on foot or by car) with parking and a boutique. (I still don't know why different types of stars are used in the exterior design of the building)

One of the most beautiful basilicas i’ve ever been to. The place is very holy as it holds the relics of Saint Thérèse. The mosaics and frescos that decorate the ceiling are very modern and i’ve never seen such art before. Make sure to visit the crypts where a tomb holds the remains of her parents
Very nice Basilica of Lisieux. Free entrance and beautiful to see the inside. Would recommend this if you are around.
