Impressive cathedral in the fortified city

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.

As many churches will, the basilica takes your breath away from the moment you walk inside! There is a handy free guide to the church's important areas. The crypt is closed at the moment for reno, unfortunately. There is no charge to visit, but you can purchase a candle, or make a donation to the upkeep. A beautiful stop while... More

This large Basilica (not a cathedral) is well worth the visit when in the Old Town of Boulogne. The interior is still receiving restoration work, but the Dome itself is quite impressive. You do get a sense of the sheer size of this church when you walk around the old walls of the town. Again well worth the visit.

Plenty to see inside and out. Look up for amazing views and detail. Closed during lunch time and only one of the side enterances was actually open.

A working local place of worship rather than a 'museum piece'.The organist was practicing as we went in which gave a very ethereal atmosphere! You get a real feeling of the history of the city from visiting the church. Worth the walk!
