“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I found the church worth a visit. I enjoyed its historical feel, architecture and art. The church alcoves had a story to tell and though the church was in need of restoration there is still enough to interest the visitor.

“Saturday visit to St Jacques”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

With the Saturday market filling the streets around the church, it was lovely to hear a choir practice on our visit. Lots of beautiful lady chapels and a serene atmosphere.

“And it's a church.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I always have a quick once around the block in St. Jacques whenever we're in Dieppe. Just a church, but it has a certain atmosphere about it that I like. Cold though! If you go in winter be sure to wear your long johns!

“Beautiful architecture needing repair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

This is a beautiful church in the middle of town worth the visit. Although in a state of deterioration, requiring nets to be strung near the roof, it is peaceful and elegant.

“Remarkable renaissance carving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

This enormous church has remarkable stonework - the rose window, screens, lady chapel and other carving are remarkable and worth a detour although in poor condition in places.
