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

The cathedral is undergoing some renovations, so probably did not view at its best. However, there is still the atmmosphere and the dome is absolutely fantasic

Brilliant accoustics. An absolutely stunning altar. Beautiful wooden sculpture of King David playing his harp. Certainly worth a visit. Stand under the 83m high dome which dominates the sky line of Boulogne-sur-mer. Pythag (Epsom)

Big church inside the town walls in desperate need of repairs. There are some areas inside cordoned off, giving impression of some emergency work being undertaken, but at the same time it seems like no-one ever worked behind those ropes... Signposting tourist route between those works would make big difference. But still definitelly worth visit, even if only to stand... More

The famous dome was blocked off so we were unable to see this but I can imagine it would be well worth the visit. The rest of the church looked like a builder's hard.

The old city is where you want to visit in this city. This church is under going restoration, but in it's form is still very nice to see. This is how many churches look like, before they are restored. A most beautiful dome, is at the front side of the cathedral. The ground are undergoing restoration, but you can walk... More

I thought this was well worth the walk up the hill. it is an impressive building. It is in need of some renovations but was charming nonetheless. The dome inside is beautiful and the statues dotted around really convey the maritime connection. I really liked the hand saved from a statue in the French Revolution. It's free, though donations very... More

As usually happens when we try to visit a cathedral (anywhere in the world, not just France!) part, or all of it, is undergoing repair. On this occasion, only workmen could enter either the main building or the crypt, so we were completely out of luck. It looks impressive from the outside and when viewed from the ramparts walk though....
