beautiful church in town

Saint Catherine's is right in the middle of Honfleur, walking distance to everything. It looks like a Viking ship, very unique architecture.

Sainte Catherine is a very old church with a superb wooden ceiling and a very particular architecture. It's a must see in Honfleur. You really feel blessed when in there.

The fact that it's all wood makes it very unique and it's huge. Not fancy or gothic or romanesque, just plain jane, upside down boat like. Loved it for it's simplicity.

This is a very quaint church located not far from the harbour in Honfleur. The church is quite small but beautiful. It gives you an insight into the people of the region and their seafaring history. It is worth a visit.
