Very peaceful. Sitting for a long time makes our mind fresh. We can see a kind of Gothic architecture in its construction. It's a very ancient church.
One of the few iconic churches in Pondicherry. This basilica has a nice Church bell tower and Altar. The car parking is limited here. The glass paintings inside depict the life of Jesus Christ. The seatings are well spaced. There is an adjacent shop inside the church campus where you get Holy water and other things to take home as a souvenir from here.
