I have never seen one like this. Even if you don't do churches pop in. The restaurants close by are very good.

We visited it on Christmas eve, walking from La Closerie Honfleur to there. It is a beautiful church with many amenities around it.

This wooden historic church was very unique compared to other churches we visited in France. It was a very short walk from the harbor.

Saint Catherine's Church is very unique, being the oldest wooden church in France, and being built by Norman ship builders. Also, the bell tower is across the small square from the church! It is very interesting to see.

We had the luck of staying at a flat right across from the church and we woke up to church bells and the market being set up. Nice wooden church that has a lot of history.

Two, when they needed to expand the church, they just added another nave. Certainly two unusual features! On the day I was there, there was a market (produce, baked goods,... More

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/
