Really beautiful inside, the walls are painted in rich colours and the stained glass is lovely. Well worth climbing the several flights of stairs to see it.

The Basilica of the Holy Blood is the place where the blood of Christ resides in a crystal vial brought back from the crusades by the Duke of Burgoyne in the middle ages. In May on Ascension day there is a great parade and celebration and it is worth traveling to see it.

This basilica is amazing. The stained glass windows look stunning in the sunlight and the pulpit is very unusual

Very interesting building in 2 parts with a medieval fairly plain part on the lower level and more ornamental newer part upstairs. Well worth a visit

You can go in this church and set for a long time taking in everything there is so much to look at. It was interesting to see someone try to take in his dog but fortunately was not able to.
