At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

At the heart of the santuary in Lourdes.

The Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire basilica in Lourdes is first and foremost a place of worship and devotion but it is also a monument of great interest thanks to its decoration. With intricate Venetian mosaics, beautiful cupolas and side chapels, this is a church in the style and tradition of the best of byzantine architecture.

These mosaics, on an estimated total surface area of around 2 000m² were made over a period of just 12 years by the master mosaic maker of the 19th century, G.D. Facchina.

He was responsible for works including the ornamentation of the Opéra Garnier in Paris, the Kyoto Imperial Palace and the basilica of Our Lady of Sion in Jerusalem. The mosaics were applied to paintings by eminent late 19th century European artists.

Each chapel represents a scene from the mysteries of the Rosary. While the paintings are the work of several artists, these 15 chapels make up a harmonious ensemble.
