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!

The dome is prominent from many miles around and the cathedral (church?) is very simple to find. It's very much the jewel in the heart of Boulogne's walled city but its poorly patched tiled floors and sometimes peeling paint do lend a feeling of faded grandeur. Parking is plentiful nearby on the other side of the city wall and there... More

The great dome of this building towers above the towns skyline and draws you to it. Situated in the old town it is a wonderful place to visit. There were renovations taking place but the magnificence of the building fills you with awe. Very peaceful place to visit with a small shop selling candles to light and remember loved ones.... More

Despite numerous visits to Boulogne, this was our first time inside Notre Dame. It was fascinating to see that amazing dome from the inside, and the frescoes around the interior. When we visited, the church was hosting an exhibition of Russian artefacts, including Russian dolls, Faberge eggs, costumed dolls and even live Russian folk music and stories. This all added...

This Cathedral has the most imposing dome that can be seen for miles as it stands high in the old town. The painting on each side of the dome are currently being restored and when finished will look wonderful. Well worth a visit to this lovely church

There is an exhibition which dates the history of the Cathedral and it is very informative. The view of the Altar and the Organ are splendid

Free to visit and cheap to light a very large candle. Must restoration work being carried out with white washing being removed and very beautiful artwork underneath being uncovered.

Has a real air of peace and tranquillity. A very good example of the architecture of that time. Not too many restrictions about what you can do or where you can go. They are fund raising to restore six murals up behind the central altar, even as they are they are impressive

Yes plenty of restoration ahead but funds seem to have been obtained and work proceeding. Might take a long time but still a lot to see. I was impressed by the marble frescos on the credenza which were pointed out to me by a local chap who seems to help out. They look like they were painted on but in... More
