Peaceful

A church which is peaceful although not suited to my protestant upbringing. It is worth going to a Benediction service.

A nice part of any visit to Honfleur. The architecture of the upside down hull of a longboat as the roof was interesting to the kids. The bell tower was a separate building, and we had to pay a couple euros to go there.

This is the largest wooden church in Europe. The night we passed by the open doors there was beautiful choral singing being performed. We returned the following day and, sadly, heard the tremendous bells in the detached bell tower being rung for a funeral.

Great Church to visit whilst passing through this bustling harbour town. So much carpentry and woodwork inside. Amazing pieces of architecture.

Worth a visit. Happen to come across a violinist playing live which added to the enjoyment of the visit to this historic church. Recommend visiting this church when in Honfleur.
