Think of Lisieux, and probably the famous Basilica comes to mind.

We spent quite a bit of time at the Basilica as it is huge.

    What is sometimes forgotten about Sainte Thérèse de Lisieux is that she is one of the very few (33 with only 4 women) Docteur de l'Eglise - Doctor of the Church, what put her on the same spiritual and intellectual level as St Thomas d'Aquin.

    Wow, this little Pierrefitte-En-Auge looks stunning! And the basilica is also an interesting piece of architecture! Cute clocks!

    The basilica looks amazing, and recent on a scale of time. Never knew it existed!

    Gorgeous mosaics in the crypt. And, I see what you mean about the frescoes!
