About France

The city of Lisieux offers many interesting activities. You can start the visit of this little town by the great basilica, built at the request of the Pope Pie XI. It honours Saint Therese whose gravestone is kept in the Carmel’s chapel.

Then, go to visit the beautiful museum of art and history ; this old building houses a unique collection relative to the past of the whole region. The Saint Peter’s cathedral is also worth the visit ; it is one of the first cathedrals built in the Norman region.

For aquatic activities, the Nautilus center is what you need ; the numerous pools, the fitness and relaxation rooms will enchant you.
