The Westin Hotel is a pretty classy hotel right across the Palais des Congres where they held the Bal-en-Blanc festival. The hotel also has a wicked pool with a glass floor where you can see cars pull up to the hotel lobby.

The church's Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues.
