What a beautiful old church made of wood. The atmosphere is what you should expect in a place of worship. This is well worth taking the time to visit.

Lovely wooden church on a nice square in the center of Honfleur. Free to visit. Something different than the general church to visit.

The church and separate belfry was built almost entirely in wood during the Hundred Years War, around 600 years ago, when stone was reserved for military purposes. Not surprisingly, as the craftsmen were shipbuilders, a lot of boat-building techniques were used and, as others have said, the roofs of the twin naves (unusual in themselves) are reminiscent of upturned ships'...

Well worth popping into. Atmosphere and structure are wonderful there were tributes being paid to the dead at Nice following the terrible events a few days ago.

We have been before and called in again. This wonderful Church has a great feeling about it of absolute calm when all around is busy.

The timber construction gives this church a unique character and feel. The description of the building being based on two upturned boats becomes clear when your inside
