Interesting, well-preserved church still in use. We were there on a Wednesday and it was surrounded by a farmer's market offering fresh produce, wine, baked goods, and made-while-you-wait crepes. In the center of a scenic historic restaurant and shopping district.

This wooden church allegedly represents the structure of a boat. It's a charming little church with an aura of peace and calm. Anybody visiting Honfleur should take the opportunity to see it. Honfleur is one of my favourite places in northern France/

We visited the old tower of Eglise Sainte Catherine. The construction is impressive. Inside you can admire the construction and that is about it. It is good it was included in the price of Musée Eugene Boudin, or I would have been disappointed having paid for it.

Not your average French stone church and well worth a visit. Made mostly of wood and has an interesting detached bell tower.

We had the pleasure of being in this beautiful old wood pillared church on a Sunday morning with the organ playing. The warm wood interior and the music made for a special experience. The wood ceiling looks like two ships’ hulls turned upside down. The church is located in the center of the old square next to Vieux Bassin.

A unique church made from large wooden beams and appearing as an upside down ship. Stained glass windows all around very beautiful.

Great history in a unique place. A place that makes you feel good. The ceiling is special in the way it was constructed.

Beautiful wooden arching ceiling and huge timber columns are unusual building materials for a European church- well worth finding in the center of town

Visited St Catherine's Church as part of an excursion off a cruise. Christine, our guide, was very informative, providing us with lots of information about the history of the church and the separate bell-tower. The 16th Century frieze running around the inside of the church is truly remarkable and the stained glass windows were simply beautiful. This church is very... More
