St Catherine's art
Apr 2020
I concur with the others about the ship church but was fascinated by this painting that reminded me of Dali's version of Christ on a Cross from a different perspective. I went in 2013 but the drop down box doesn't go that far back.

Inside out
Jan 2021
Grand looks from outside. The church inside is very different story as symmetry is not maintained, askewed benches and cheap fag decorations of nylon.

Very special church for the fishermen.

Church made by the fishermen of Honfleur. Made with a lot of wood, which makes it very special. Also a special chapel for the fishermen, with boatmodels.

Stunning church constructed from wood by the shipwrights of Honfleur with a separately constructed bell tower. This is a must see sight if you're in Honfleur

Wooden church
Jul 2020 • Couples
This is quite an unusual, yet fascinating church. Quite dark inside but the whole structure or at least a large proportion is wooden which gives it a medieval feel. I can't actually tell you how old it is but it feels old and it has bags of character, worth a little visit.
