It was very peaceful and quiet here. I enjoyed the hilly walk from the center of town to get here. The church is beautiful and feels very grand in person. There are benches to sit on under unique looking trees on the far right side...More

The outer structure is magnificent and worth taking a while just to admire. The interior is not quite as impressive, but the stained glass is marvelous. After the hike up the very steep hill, this feels like the church at the top of the world.

The building itself is worth one picture. The inside is rather empty. The view is not so great, there are better ones from other places. I cannot recommend this place.

This church is very pretty but it is such a trek to get to from the bottom. It's slightly more modern that others i've seen. The view makes everything worth it though. You can see over all of Anncey.

Don't know if I would have come here if it wasn't a stop on our tour but I'm glad I did. The view alone is worth it . You can see all of Annecy and the lake on a clear day. The inside of the...More

I walked upto the Basilica after hearing about it on the boat tour. It was a ten minute uphill walk from the old town. It was beautiful and quiet inside. I would have stayed longer but one gentleman was moving the benches making a bit...More

An amazing structure that was so bright because of the reflection of the sun off its while stone that I battled to get a worthwhile photo. The interior is well cared for and really beautiful, although the outside has absolutely no garden or lawn of...More
