A very beautiful church that is well worth a visit. It has a great feeling of peace and many wonderful things to admire.

This church is located on a pleasant square in the centre of town. It can get very crowded with tour parties, especially when the cruise ships are visiting. We waited in pleasant cafe on the square until it became more peaceful. It is extremely unusual...More

The largest wooden church in France. Originally built by the ship builders. When they needed a larger church they added a duplicate nave beside the original. Quite unique. I couldn't find "Honfleur" as a site on Trip Advisor, so will simply remark here that this...More

The church is very much in character with the old fishing village that once existed here. A nice respite from the tourist attractions of today.

It's a church built of wood... nothing more. I would say, spend your valuable time somewhere else in the beautiful surroundings!

Really lovely chirch in the heart of the town. It appears much bigger inside than it looks from outside and is all timber framing. The brightly coloured windows bathe the inside in colour and make it feel warn and inviting. Well worth a look around.

Apparently the largest wooden church in France and it is stunning. Vaulted roof and lovely stained glass. Located on the harbour a great spot to get some shade from the sun.

A wooden cathedral that is good to walk around. When we visited it was dressed for the Fisherman festival so looked splendid. You will find it peaceful and serene.

Interesting double vaulted church. Not the usual look for a church in France. We heard a little bit of the organ being played while we were there--would have been nice to come back for a recital.

This wooden church was constructed in the 15th and 16th century by locals using wood rather than wait for stone to be transported to the town. its unique ceiling is shaped like a boat and has been remarkably preserved and maintained down through the centuries....More
