A pilgrim’s place

Every year, more than 500.000 pilgrims from all over the world come to visit the village of Ars and its abbey. The extraordinary Saint-Sixte abbey, with neo-byzantine architecture, was built on the tomb of the vicar of Ars, Jean-Marie Vianney, patron saint of the vicars. This construction, designed by Pierre-Marie Bossan, architect of the basilica of Fourvière in Lyon, will surprise you with a great number of painted decors.
