Just a 15 minute walk from the centre of Honfleur via the Rampe de Joli (a steep but well surfaced public footpath with spectacular views). This lovely little chapel is well worth a visit either on foot, by car or using the tourist train which...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...More

This is a small but striking church in Honfleur. Every 15 minutes the bells chime out a song. The bell "tower" is situated right next to the church on what looks like a make-shift wooden A-frame. The church is just packed with relics and pretty...More

This was one of my favorite places in HonFleur. A beautiful church, hidden at the top of a long hill with beautiful views over the city. Just five minutes walk from the church is Panorma Mont-Joli which is one of the best views of HonFleur....More

Lovely church. Be there on the hour to see and hear the amazing bells. A great spot with good views over Honfleur and plenty of picnic opportunities.

As churches/chapels go this was fairly interesting with the history of St Therese de Lisiuex. I wouldn't have walked up for this alone, though clearly it is a pace of pilgrimage for some

There is a tourist train that takes you to the top, to visit the church, see the view and hear the bells ring. Wish we'd known as it was a hot walk up there. Strictly speaking I don't think the structure outside the church is...More

It is said that worshipping here saved Honfleur from destruction in WW11. It is not grand but worth the visit even if it is just for the view. Remember no talking in the church.

We walked up a very steep hill (100 meters) on the west side of Honfleur’s harbor to reach this chapel. It was built in 1600 to 1615 by the townspeople and mariners of Honfleur, replacing a former chapel destroyed during a landslide. The chapel sits...More

We visited the Notre Dame de Grace Church as part of our trip on Le Petit Train de Honfleur. The Church is old, high above the town and with the bells on a large framework outside the Church. It was well worth a visit.

How anyone can just say this is “just a church on a hill” beats me. It is the church where prayers were said for the people setting out from France for Canada 500 years ago. They were risking their lives to settle an unknown land....More

I'm at a loss to know why anyone would take the time to visit? If you take Le Petite Train (for the ride, not the destination) I understand, otherwise not so much. The bells a a bit cool; be there when they ring.
