Wandered around the Christmas markets in this location. Really lovely atmosphere, some nice restaurants and shops etc. Popped into the church too - seems really dreary from the outside and not much decoration on the inside, but somehow makes it really beautiful. Definitely worth having a look!

Enjoyed the Christmas markets today at St Catherine. Lots of stalls right where you come out of the metro station. Mulled wine delicious, sugared nuts yum! went on the Ferris Wheel which was fun! Watched the Japanese Origami lights display on St Catherine church which happens on regular intervals from 6pm, whilst eating a good waffle !

The area is quite nice and lively with a lot of bars and restaurants around the square and in the nearby little streets. Though the square in itself and the church are not exceptional and could benefit from some cleaning.

I have walked by this cathedral often on my way to the many fish restaurants that surround it. A typical old and somewhat historic building. It is a good landmark for finding the old fish market area that is now the home of some good fish restaurants.

Come here on an evening, perhaps before a meal and sit in the pleasant square. Nearby, perhaps on a morning, sit and dream in one of the many cafes.

Well Place Sainte Catherine is definitely a nice little place to go to. Filled with history and made famous for it's fish market, but except for a few fish restaurant and fishmongers, you can hardly find a trace of it. It quays have been filled with concrete ages ago, but it is still a nice buzzy / quiet place to... More
