Just a 15 minute walk from the centre of Honfleur via the Rampe de Joli (a steep but well surfaced public footpath with spectacular views). This lovely little chapel is well worth a visit either on foot, by car or using the tourist train which includes the site in its informative round trip of Honfleur. Built in he 1600's to... More

It is possible to drive up to this church but we decided to walk, quite strenuous but well worth the climb, as inside is all peace and quiet. On the way up spectacular views of the Normandy Bridge open up at every twist and turn.

Very unique setting with great view of Pont du Normandie and Honfleur. Early explorers said prayers here before crossing the Atlantic .nice hike from town.

If you see nothing else in Honfleur see this church. Sitting at the top of Honfleur you feel a bond with all the past, then when the bells ring one can not help but be very moved. My best memory of my trip to Normandy. I saw this church after touring Omaha Beach and the American cemetery and stayed for... More

The choir met together at Notre Dame de Grace where we sung some reflective music both inside and outside this delightful small chapel. Well worth the climb. Return via the zig zag path for more beautiful views.

A gem of a church on a hill above Honfleur, a bit out of the way perhaps! It is well worth the effort to get there, however. Someone suggested driving, but having seen the roads and the elevations, unless you are brave driver, just walk. There is parking at the top, however and we even saw the little tourist train... More

Don't miss it when you are around: the chapel is very beautiful and it is located on a steep hill overlooking Seine and the city, with calm and green surroundings. You can walk up from Charrière de la Croix Rouge by a twisting path which starts right after the Place du Puits. It is a very steep climb but very... More

Great spot, great view, amazing place full of sailing boats models hanging from the ceiling and plenty of ex voto on walls. It is a special place of pilgrimage and celebrations. A must.

My wife and I have been married since 1977. Every year that we come to Normandy where she has a home, we visit the church for a few minutes for reflection and solitude. It's only a few minutes from Deauville and Honfleur yet one feels totally at peace here. There is so much history in the area yet few visitors... More

A very unique, non typical French catholic church - small, intimate and charming on the inside. Do not walk there, the climb is long and unnecessary as you can drive up if you can find the road.
