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

Wonderful, well worth a visit ... Look up and take in the fab ceiling in the shape of the hull of a ship

What a lovely timbered church building from the outside, but the interior was stunning. Many interesting features especially the barrel rooves. Extremely well preserved and clearly valued by the congregation and visitors alike. A must to see when visiting Honfleur.

Beautiful church, we attended a service which we liked. Relatively big, well maintained. A walking distance from the old Harbor

Nice little bit of peace in the hustle and bustle of Honfleur. The marker takes place on Wednesday and Saturday outside the church. Definitely worth an hour to see this beautiful church.
