Beautiful dome and some other interesting interior features. At the time of our visit, there was an art exhibition to raise money to restore 6 huge frescos. Badly worn floors and faded paint only added to the charm, but an impressive building inside and out and well worth a visit.

Notre dame is under great repair having been neglected for so long, will be many years before it is finished, but the old town just has to be visited, wonderful atmosphere restaurants cobbled streets and bars all very friendly. Plenty of parking nearby. Once you have been to this part of Boulogne you will keep com ing back

Large and beautifully designed church in the historic fortified city of Boulogne-sur-Mer. Well worth a visit. But closed between noon and 2 pm!

An extraordinary basilica with the rather odd bronze hand as the focal point. When I visited the organ was blasting out in suitable volume to the capacious interior. - an unusual experience - but a good one, The place needs some restoration but gives one an overall sensation of spirituality in an otherwise pretty sterile town,.

certainly worth a visit if in Boulogne, also not much else to see, frankly I would bypass the entire city but as I was here the Church was OK

The Basilica is being restored at present but is still well worth a visit. Details about the altar area are explained in both French and English and are very interesting. The crypt should also be seen if open.

The Basilica is well worth a visit, excellent acoustics and high vaulted ceilings. Evening service was touching.
