SANCTUARY OF ARS SUR FORMANS
It is in this small village where Jean-Marie Vianney says the Holy Priest of Ars, awakened the faith for 41 years.
A giant of holiness, a famous confessor, who spent days in his confessional, he attracted crowds of penitents.
He was canonized in 1925 by Pope Pius XI and declared «patron of all the parish priests of the universe».
In the footsteps of the Holy Priest, come and discover the Basilica of Saint Sixtus, the semi-buried church of Our Lady of Mercy, the Chapel of the Heart, the house of the Saint and the Chapel of Providence.
