A steep climb to the old church Notre Dame de Grace leads to the panoramic view of the so called "Côte de Grace" a wonderful excursion from Honfleur, between old trees and panoramic sea views. The old church is famous for its ex-voto model ships, carefully handcrafted by seamen to thank The Lady for saving their ship

Many people said the uphill walk to the chapel was steep and would take 2 hours. Don't believe them unless you crawl up the hill. The bells behind the chapel are beautiful, so be sure to walk around it toward the giant cross overlooking the Seine. Try to be there at the top of an hour to hear them ring.

I guess you could drive up but we needed the exercise. It was not a long walk but it is entirely up hill. The views were well worth it but even more impressive was the Chapel of Notre-Dame de Grace. The church must have been built by mariners as there are boats hanging from the ceiling, pictures of boats on... More

Yes, those people who said that the hill Mont Joli opens beautiful views are right, but the view of the river mouth only is not quite what I expected. Of course, to sit a little in the chapel and enjoy the peace is another thing... if this is what you come here. Everything that is the most beautiful you will... More

We had a lovely walk up from Honfleur to this chapel. The decor inside is unusual - like a cross between a pub and a museum - model boats hanging from the ceiling, a lot of dark wood and plenty of statues. A wall of poignant memorials. A strong sense of a seafaring community. We were there at midday and... More

Beside the little church is a Glockenspiel and we stayed to see it in action at the end of a quarter hour. We then tried to continue our walk, but without any guideposts we got lost again and again. Finally we found a steep zigzag path the led us straight into town. As I said, it is a pleasant walk... More

My husband and I walked uphill on city streets to reach this lovely, little chapel which sits on top of the hill. Little model boats hang from the ceiling and pictures of boats line the ceiling. The stain glass continues with the nautical theme. One must not forget that seafaring was a dangerous profession and the congregants found solace in... More

I had read something about it being worth the climb up to this chapel, so convinced two of my fellow travelers to make the trek up the hill. We arrived after the chapel was closed for the day, so we were disappointed. It's quite a hike up the switchbacks, but the walk down was easier by the main street Le... More

The owner of Residence Mogador fabricated the beautiful stained glass window in this small chapel in the woods. Beautiful!!!!! He is just one of the many artists that call Honfleur home..

Regarded as the largest all wooden church in Europe. Magnificent! Special to be there during their annual festival. Very unique. Separate bell tower is not be missed.
