before attending the Sunday service made time to go around the amazing vaults found a long time ago when wanting to build new church. staggering number of areas with very old paintings on walls/ceilings plus beautiful amounts of goblets and ornaments dripping with gold. very old drawings of previous church people have amazingly all survived-even if touch worn by now...

Popped in on a grey June afternoon. The inside of the basilica is breathtaking. Well worth a visit. A combination of lunch, a stroll around the remparts and a visit inside Notre Dame made a very pleasant afternoon in the old town of Boulogne.

Walked up to the old town of Boulogne and visited here. What a beautiful building. The Dome itself is huge and stands out across the town's landscape. Inside is impressive and well worth a visit.

Superb church set in wonderful surroundings inside the old roman walls . The dome towers over the rest of the town . It truly shows that our forefathers had so much talent in this part of France in the construction trade . Showing us the best that we can be.

Much to see in the old town of Boulogne , including The Note Dame de Boulogne. The old town is in a much elevated position from all the modern shops and restaurants. Well worth the pain of walking up the steep hill right to the top. You will see the fortified walled village with steps up to high fortified walls... More

Notre Dame de Boulogne is in a state of despair. The paint is peeling off the walls, the place look dirty and that fishermen's net in the altar is hideous. The French don't take care of their religious patrimony. If you go to Belgium, Germany or Spain, all neighboring countries of France; their churches are in better shape. I am... More

Was surprised to find the dome was in a separate area from the rest of the cathedral and how tall it was inside. I was worried that the frescoes are all cracked due to the excavations which have been carried out in the crypt. It will be great when the frescoes are restored. Sadly not all the notices ,for instance... More

This cathedral dominates the sky line of the old town. Had a pleasant visit in the cathedral, with its spectacular dome. The crypt, which cost 5 euros is well worth a visit.
