The Carmel is well worth a walk around; the museum contains a number of interesting artefacts. Silence is observed in the chapel.

For pilgrims of sainte Terese a must. My kids were fascinated by the holy relics. Being from a Methodist background, they didn't quite get it. The question asked was ' why did they cut up a saint?'

The carmel is very close from the tourist information office, is very quite and has a little museum well worth the visit, it's free. There is a very nice bookstore and gift shop where a lot of the things are done by the nouns and...More

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

There isn't much of the Carmel which you can access (it's still a working convent, so fair enough) but the chapel and the shop are both worthwhile, especially as they are obviously free of charge. We took the time to pray in front of the...More

This is a perfect first stop to be with Therese and the bookstore is the best. You can sit in prayer even with the chapel having services. The rose garden outside is exquisite. If you get in late, this is a perfect place to walk...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.
