Saint Therese of Lisieux was beatified in 1923 and canonized in 1925. It was decided to build a large basilica dedicated to the pilgrimage in the city where she lived and where she died.
Preceded by a large forecourt, the monument stands on a hill, on the edge of the city. It is fully funded by donations and subscriptions from around the world.

The cathedral of Saint-Pierre de Lisieux is a monument of Gothic style which survived the 1944 bombings. The church visible today was built between 1160 and 1230, at the initiative of Bishop Arnoul.

About Lourdes:
• St Bernadette
Saint Bernadette of Lourdes was the firstborn daughter of a miller from Lourdes and came to be venerated as a saint in the Catholic Church.
She has become best known for the 18 Marian apparitions of a "young lady" who asked for a chapel to be built at the nearby cave-grotto at Massabielle where apparitions are said to have occurred between 11 February and 16 July 1858. She would later receive recognition when the lady who appeared to her identified herself as the Immaculate Conception.
• The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes
This sanctuary is a destination for pilgrimage; sick pilgrims are reputed to be miraculously healed by Lourdes spring waters. The Domain includes the Grotto itself, the nearby taps which dispense the Lourdes water, and the offices of the Lourdes Medical Bureau, as well as several churches and basilicas. It comprises an area of 51 hectares and includes 22 separate places of worship.
• The Evening Torchlight Procession
As early as 18th February 1858, the day of the third Apparition, one of the two people accompanying Bernadette carried a candle. After this, Bernadette herself always came with a candle. The iconic Lourdes Torchlight Procession was introduced in Lourdes in 1863. Now, everyday at 9 p.m. pilgrims from all over the world carry a candle to the place of the apparitions.
During the Procession, and depending on the day, the pilgrims recite the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful or Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. The procession always takes place regardless of the weather.
