This church was the most unexpected sight in the town and we loved it. Beautifully build in wood, big and central. It is also very historical and add wonderfully well to the atmosphere of the town.

This church is a magnificent old church that we visited recently while in Honfleur. The roof is made from a boat (or maybe several) turned upside down. It is remarkable to see!

Beautiful and peaceful church. It is a wonderful place to spend some time to reflect and pray. Lovely building with an external bell tower which is open to visitors. Try not to miss the wonderful peal of bells at 9pm!

Worth a peek when in town - really interesting church in an old, timber construction design. Not like what you have come to expect touring through Europe.

I was impressed that the church is still active and vital. It had a higher energy level and was more moving than I expected.
