Large church but small for a basilica. Lots to see. Organ recital whilst we were there. Brill. Nice cobbled square with open air cafe and bar. Unbelievable Tourism Office(in terms of building) next to it.

We sat in the square where this is located and ate dinner, Its an amazing old church. We walked around the inside prior to dinner. Just beautiful and I would not miss this if I was you.

Worth a look around. Another great French building and lots of history. Worth going in and looking at the stained glass window. Also plenty of street cafes outside to sit and watch the world go by.

Another of France's splendid religious buildings. The main attraction is the chapel devoted to the parents of Saint Thérèse, where their relics are. There's also an impressive baldachin.
