Basilica of the visitation

This sanactuary, built in 1930, attracts many pilgrims for the Saint François celebrations (24th January) and during the Great novena (grande neuvaine) in August. Lavishly decorated inside, the sanctuary keeps relics of St François de Sales and St Jeanne de Chantal, the patron Saints of the town. The Church also has a carillon of 37 bells.
