A Stunning Experience
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on June 19, 2020

We were able to sit and listen to the choirs. The acoustics are amazing. Our tour group also sang a couple selections and it will be an experience I will never forget.

This was one of my favorite places we visited, mostly because we had an opportunity to hear songs from different groups that where there on their pilgrimage as we were here on ours. It was interesting to note that this is French owned. It is considered part of France and the French Flag does fly above. The church is over what is believed to be home of Anne the mother of Mary. It is also has amazing acoustics, which is why we and other groups sang here. So we had a mini concert of singing before we went up to sing. The group before us had one woman singer who I had to believe was a professional singer, her voice was amazing. We went up as a group to sing and I thought we sounded pretty good considering we had no practice. Also hearing different languages singing either familiar hymns was a treat to hear.

The quality of the visit here depends on timing - check before to make sure the church will be open when you come. It was closed when we arrived, so we only saw the exterior and visited the ruins. That said, they are interesting and a challenge for the picture taker. Due to the flatness and lack of contrast, if you are an amateur photographer visit early or late. Good spot for a zoom lens since you view from above and cannot enter the ruins. Expect post-processing to bring out contrast.
