Incredible travel back in time. Amazing wooden church, in the middle of a small plaza, really speaking about old times. To be visited inside and admired from outside. You will understand why it is considered the most famous place in Honfleur.

A beautiful church exterior, unusual interior
Sep 2021 • Couples
A really beautiful building, both inside and out. The separate bell tower seems very unusual, a northern European campanile with a clock with a wooden face.

The half timbered structure has a long house feel, and the interior looks like the inside of a boat with a hull-like roof and wooden columns. Some lovely carving on gallery, columns and the southern doors. A wonderful escape from the crowds and tourist shops of Honfleur.

St Catherine's art

I concur with the others about the ship church but was fascinated by this painting that reminded me of Dali's version of Christ on a Cross from a different perspective. I went in 2013 but the drop down box doesn't go that far back.

Inside out
Jan 2021
Grand looks from outside. The church inside is very different story as symmetry is not maintained, askewed benches and cheap fag decorations of nylon.

Very special church for the fishermen.

Church made by the fishermen of Honfleur. Made with a lot of wood, which makes it very special. Also a special chapel for the fishermen, with boatmodels.
