Paray-le-Monial The Essential
Recommended
An important place of pilgrimage dedicated to the worship of the Sacred Heart, Paray-le-Monial lives from one religious gathering to the next. Its basilica is considered the finest preserved example of Cluny architecture. Located on the Bourbince, a tributary of the Loire that runs alongside the Canal du Centre, it is also a good place to pick up the Voie Verte, a pleasant path open to cyclists, rollerbladers and pedestrians.
