Sights[edit]

The Basilica of St. Regis, designed in Byzantine Revival style and completed in 1877, contains the relics of St. John Francis Regis (Jean-François Régis). The windows of the basilica recount the life of the saint and the frescoes in the choir tell the history of pilgrimages to the place. The basilica includes a museum for visitors.

The house where the saint died, on 31 December 1640, is located nearby and has been transformed into a sanctuary.

Personalities[edit]

St. Thérèse Couderc, co-founder of the Sisters of the Cenacle, also is buried in Lalouvesc.
