Basilique De La Visitation Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful old church with stunning views of Annecy right outside its doors!
Very interesting place, awesome architecture. For those interested in saint Francis of Sales, it's a good place to visit, where it's also possible to visit a very small museum there and know some more about this saint's life. If you visit the souvenir point, although the sister is very nice and gently, be prepared to deal with the language (only French spoken).
The Church has a high wall BLOCKING the view & bell tower was not accessible. Don't get your hopes up when you get here. There are some photos in this listing showing great views. . . But there's a lot of lakeside construction happening so most those view are gone. C'est la vie...
Well worth the walk! Very different from any other basilique.
