The crypt: the mystery of the relics of Mary Magdalene

  • Relics of Mary Magdalene

    Vestige of the Carolingian church, where the humble atmosphere and silence in the darkness invites you to pray. For centuries kings and large crowds of pilgrims came together to honor the relics of Mary Magdalene, placed in a gilded bronze relic cabinet.

     

    Here in the crypt the contrast between the dark enclosed space and the open and radiant church above are once again evident.

    Each year, the pilgrimage of St. Mary Magdalene takes place on July 22.
