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...More

Old church which is a bit dwarfed by the nearby cathedral but worth a visit.. The modern stained glass sits well in the antique setting. Very dirty and poorly maintained sadly.

Lovely church right in the middle of Caen. Undergoing lots of work but still accessible and worth a visit. Beautiful stained glass. Interesting to read the information they have provided around the church.

We found the church to be beautiful with statues, stained glass, the altar area, etc. We got a separate treat in that the organist was practicing so the place was filled with her music. Worth popping in!
