    • The Basilica of Lisieux

    Saint Therese of Lisieux was beatified in 1923 and canonized in 1925. It was decided to build a large basilica dedicated to the pilgrimage in the city where she lived and where she died.

    Preceded by a large forecourt, the monument stands on a hill, on the edge of the city. It is fully funded by donations and subscriptions from around the world.
    • The Cathedral of Saint-Pierre de Lisieux

    The cathedral of Saint-Pierre de Lisieux is a monument of Gothic style which survived the 1944 bombings. The church visible today was built between 1160 and 1230, at the initiative of Bishop Arnoul. Bishop Pierre Cauchon, who is known for investigating the trial of Joan of Arc, is buried there as he was appointed bishop of Lisieux in 1432.
