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....More

I've already reviewed the Basilica as Lisieux is a town I visit with some regularity. However, yesterday I did something I'd not done in many years - climbed the 305 steps to the top of the dome. It was certainly worth the effort - you...More

Whether you are of the Catholic faith or non believer, this basilica is well worth visiting. From a Catholic perspective there is the spiritual aspect to the visit, but even if you are of no faith, the basilica itself is a sight to behold. From...More

A fascinating place of remembrance of a dedicated soul. The architecture is in perfect symbiosis with the spiritual message of Therese and of the church.

We traveled here from Bayeux, stopping to see the home of St. Therese. The Basilica is one of our favorites we've visited. Almost entirely empty (mid-week visit), and the mosaics are striking. Fascinating to learn about St. Therese's life and her parents. An inspiring story.
