Really interesting interior. Just walk in and take a round. Amount of eye catching small details is impressive. It has own soul.

Pretty cathedral, pretty inside and out. Worth visiting, it's in the old town. I'd recommend the crypt too. Also you can walk the city wall.

The outside of the Notre Dame is rather impressive, but the interior seems to be decaying at lightspeed. It's one of the few landmarks in Boulogne-sur-Mer so be sure to visit, although it won't take you long.

The church has been neglected for too long, with the result that the frescos have worn in the damp conditions and the plaster is cracking. This is neglect on a major scale, and is a disgrace to the town and people of Boulogne.

We've been to some stunning churches and cathedrals, but this isn't one of them. The nave is pretty empty and uninspiring with ceilings peeling and little to no decoration. Given that the cupola is far better and grand it feels more like a separate building......More

At the top of the town it dominates the skyline and inside it is initially interesting if unspectacular. However go into the area under the dome and the visit goes up a level. The decoration is spectular but the whole cathedral seems to be suffering...More

Worth a short walk up the hill to the fortified town and chateau to walk through the cobbled streets and large array of restaurant choices.

There is much to see in Boulogne sur mer including the old fortified walled part of Boulogne high up above the modern shops and restaurants and well worth the pain of walking 10 minutes up the steep road to the old town. Inside the walls...More

The area is the nicest in the city, the place is nice to look into. The building inside need some restoration work, yet you can feel the atmosphere .

We spent roughly half an hour in the cathedral, as there is actually quite a lot to see. It certainly is an impressive building, both from the exterior as well as from inside. Some of the artefacts and the history of the church are documented...More
