“Stunning church”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

A beautiful wooden church and well worth a visit. sit quietly and look up at the roof, you can tell that ship builders built the church. A good place to sit and contemplate.

“Very cute, quaint church”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

After visiting cathedrals in Paris, this was a cute church made out of wood that is centuries old. The ceiling is like 2 upside down boats. The sides of the church are decorated with colorful flags. This is a must see in Honfleur.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

If the outside doesn't do it for you then the inside will, completely made of wood its magnificently presented and adorned with shipping flags, sorry I'm not a sailor so didn't quite grasp their meaning, and all of the small plaques to those that have passed on are worth taking the time to look at and read

“Rustic wooden church”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

The church is not grand like Notre Dame or the one in Ruen. It is built with local ship building techniques and styles. The roof looks like the hull of a wooden ship. It is very charming in its own right.

“St. Catherine's, Honfleur”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

What a beautiful church and the history behind it is so wonderful. The icons and acoustics are wonderful and it reminds me of a large Viking ship or arc. I am so happy that we took the time to see this historical site.
