Alençon

The town (95km south of Lisieux) conserves two very important places from the childhood of Thérèse.

  • The house of her birth where she was born on 2nd January 1873
  • Notre Dame Church which conserves the baptistery where she was baptised on 4th January 1873.

Following Madame Martin’s death, Mr. Martin and his daughters left Alençon to settle in Lisieux.
