Avioth has been a place of pilgrimage for many hundreds of years (since the early 12th century) and it was this that led to the building of the vast Church of Our Lady of Avioth. It is a masterpiece of Flamboyant Gothic architecture, dating from the second half of the 13th century, and is often described as "lacework in stone". It is famous for its "Recevresse", a small building in front of the church that is unique.
The "Cathedral in the Fields" has been a listed historic monument since 1840 and a basilica church since 1993.
The pilgrimage in honour of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is held on 16 July.
Every year, a number of special events are staged around the basilica and they are very important for the village. On the 3rd Sunday in July, there is an arts and crafts fair called Les Artistiques d'Avioth and, in the 2nd weekend of December, there is the Christmas Village.
