This small village you're about to bypass when driving towards Utah beach. As Utah is the farthest beach we rushed to it primary to see the museum while it's open, so saved our visit to this small village at dusk on our way back.
The Church is very nice, both inside and outside and has an interesting history.
Across it is a cute square with a town hall and small streets around with several plaques explaining interesting facts of WWII.

This little town with a splendid old church is well worth a visit if you are in the area. The church tower was used as a lookout by the Germans. There are info boards around the town center that tell of interesting incidents around June 6, 1944.

Really beautiful church, with an amazing spire, which was rebuilt after the war.
Take time to visit this church and walk around the village. The story of theinvasion, by allied troops, on Utah beach, is told on information boards, all around the church and village. Details which would otherwise have been lost, show the human side of this battle, all shared by the local people. Well worth a visit

Church has a interesting history in WW2.

Felt more could have been made of it, although they did have some photos with a little detail around it.

The main reason to go here is of course if you are a WW2 buff. The church is interesting to see. Go inside it's nice (and free). The town (shops and cafe) around the church square are cute. You can see everything in about 20 minutes but still worth a look and you can buy souvenirs, lunch, ice cream. There is a nice bakery just off the main square which sells good sandwiches and pastries. The other reason to go to Sainte Marie Eglise is the Airbourne Museum which is amazing.

It is one of the stories one hears in childhood and you wonder if it is in fact true - then you visit the place and appreciate how significantly the locals remember & "mark" the parachute landings. Its "touristy" around the church - but that comes with the territory unfortunately

I have had a look round in this wonderful building . Its been under renovation most of this year and will look stunning once its finished. Its the center piece of this village and the first thing you see when you arrive. Its worth a visit.

Lovely little church, which like many towns and buildings in this part of France has it's own D-Day story, which makes it interesting. Make sure to read the information provided at the information point. Also look at the beautiful glass stained windows. If you are on your way to Utah beach and pass through Sainte Marie du Mont pay this lovely church a well deserved visit

I remember the movie the longest day in which the paratrooper was caught up on the top of the church. Here they have a dummy hanging up there to represent that. The stain glass windows are beautiful and re-done to commemorate the paratroopers liberating the town.
