We stopped by Caen on the way back from Omaha for dinner. We passed the church which was beside the wall of the Caen castle. Half of the tower was lit with blue light, giving it an eerie look, almost like the light was leaking from inside the tower. It was interesting to look at while waiting at the stop lights. It is quite different from other churches at night. We didn't go in but it would have been interesting to see if the blue light was also used inside.

Yes its a church not a cathedral according to the web but you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise as its an absolute beauty. The fascinating thing when we were there, was to stand on the east side and see it looking unrenovated and in desperate need of some urgent attention, and then going round to the west and seeing it undergoing the renovation it deserves - must be costing a 'Kings ransom' but unarguably worth every centime. Not sure how long their going to be there but when we went inside they had three of the Bells, (originals now replaced?) on show.

to be honest all the churches in Caen are worth a visit when you are passing or walking around the Centre and this is no exception. Lovely stain glass windows. Regards Gary Saunders

Just outside the castle, a bit lower lies this impressive church. The outside of this church, especially the back side is stunning, and hence it was a favourite view for early painters. Inside the choir is impressively decorated in renaissance style, and some of the ceilings are well worth seeing. Renovations are ongoing.
