Beautiful place of pilgrimage. The starting point when visiting Lisieux. The serenity of the place and the story of Therese are very touching.

We returned to Carmel in July 2017, having been there in August 2016. This is a very quiet sacred place. A place of great power. The exhibition is very interesting with actual objects from The Little Flower herself. The only downside is the shop, there...More

Street parking is available on the street by meter and Carmel is a short two minute walk past a lovely garden area. Entrance is free and is a quiet and contemplative chapel.

If interested in St. Therese, a most remarkable contemporary Saint, you must visit the chapel and museum dedicated to her life. It is a very spiritual place. Take your time, and meet God as you contemplate the wonders He has done in her short life.

Truly amazing to see the intact body of St. Therese in the monastery that she joined in the 19th century. Very peaceful place in middle of the city of Lisieux.

This is the convent where Saunt Therese spent her life , very simple church , and the glass tomb containing part of her body and there is a very good souvenir shop on site also with a library of books.
