It's a pleasant place to pop in to as a break from the bustle of the Biarritz sea front just outside, but there's nothing particularly remarkable about the exterior or the interior decoration. It's certainly not worth a special trip.

We didn't get to visit inside, but the exterior is amazing so it is still worth a visit just to examine the designs. Wonderful building great op, make the time to stop by and check it out.

Really not sure why this listed as an attraction, it is a place of worship there is no incredible art to look Aton the ceiling or any famous tombs. It is just like any other church in any other city, there is no reason to visit this other than to worship for which is the reason it was built
