St. Catherine's Church in Honfleur is unbelievably beautiful. The largest surviving timber framed church in France dating back to the 15th century. It really is amazing, such a massive space it takes your breath away. Well worth a visit.

Any picture shows the beauty of this XV century temple. Built by boat builders, its roof has the shape of 2 boats. It is the major church of France built in wood. The bell tower, also in wood, was built separately from the church supposedly...More

This church constructed of all wood was an incredible masterpiece of architecture to behold. The space is vast and completely filled with incredible pieces of art, sculptures, and displays. I was somewhat surprised that they allowed and encouraged all the open candle memorial stations all...More

A wooden church that is very interesting, had a food market around it when we visited. Inside is worth seeing as it is so different in that it is not made of stone.

I have visited Cathedrals and Churches all over Europe. This is the most unusual Church that I have visited. It is the largest wooden church in France. It has two parallel Naves. The first Nave was built in 1468. It proved to be too small...More

Beautiful church in the middle of this bustling harbour town. Stunning architecture and unusual wooden construction. Very peaceful and atmospheric inside with a wonderful sense of the building being an important 'heart' of the community for hundreds of years.

Based upon past experiences, we were mightily impressed with how much this church felt so Scandinavian to us. Maybe it was the wood, probably that was it. Maybe the exterior architecture, yeah, that was a part of it, too. It just didn't feel like the...More

Staggeringly beautiful interior - well worth walking just a short way to visit it. It's completely made of wood inside instead of stone and is so different from the usual.

Is there a way to find the bus stops through Honfleur? (11 Replies)
Planning on taking the no 20 bus verts from Deauville to Honfleur. Can I find out where the bus stops in Honfleur? Or does it just go to the Gare Routiere and not stop anywhere else? I want to see whether it is feasible to walk from bus to accommodation - not chosen yet. Will probably choose somewhere easily walked to from bus. I had looked at a b&amp;b near Saint Catherine church but that seems a distance from Gare Routiere. But if the bus travelled further??Thankyou.
