It's quite sad to see such a venerable and historic church in such disrepair. There is some evidence of minor restoration work-but it appears to be moving at a snail's pace. It would take very substantial funds and considerable expertise to restore the church to its former glory. While that may not happen in our lifetimes, it is still worth... More

My husband really likes churches and I am fond of architecture too, so a perfect match. ;-) This is a nice and soothing church. It is beautiful but it has a really nice and calming atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

The church is impressive outside and inside. If you want to be alone in the city you must visit in during normal week. I spent here about an hour completly alone, it's quiet and offer a reflection moment during the busy day. Church is in the center of the city not so far away from the main square. Needs renovation,... More

This is a lovely church to visit. Yes it needs restoring but the carvings are wonderful. Some nice enclave churches inside. It is located off the main square and is well worth popping in. Lets hope they start to restore this soon.

The centre of town, it has seen many a rough day and looks it, a renovation is on the cards so donate kindly. We were in town on market day (don't miss that either) and the church was open. It is stunning, the carvings and plasterwork is amazing, as with visiting churches it is a quiet and often reflective moment... More

The church, outside and inside, offers excellent photo opportunities with its many side-chapels and its windows, altars etc. Not as famous as the one in Paris, but should be!

Quite attractive old Gothic church, only the violet doors are a little ridiculous and hardly compatible to the facade. Visit small traditional market next to the church on Tuesdays. Some streets around the church are also interesting.

Lovely run down gothic church in the centre of Dieppe. The outside is very impressive and there are fantastic gargoyles around the roof. Very atmospheric and a favourite subject for artists such as Pissarro and Sickert.
