The chapel is quite small but quite beautiful. Seemed dark at first until I located the switches for the lights! Also while here walk around the WW2 German blockhouse and gun and radar emplacements. Boards give descriptions and history (in English). Very interesting.

We visited this place when we were in Normandy for a three day stay. It's a small chapel on the top of the Cliffs of Fécamp. Inside there are a lot of memories for fishersman.

This is worth a quick visit. You will understand how tough the Great Bank fishermen's life was. How many lost their life while fishing. The Chapel is cute.

A very pretty little chapel, built to protect the sailors. Do go inside it may be small, but it is absolutely charming. Allow yourself to have a walk around outside, the views are spectacular, there are also various historical buildings.

Cute little chapel on white cliffs. Worth to visit, look inside and also of course look around, to see arched rocks Porte au Roi and Porte à la Reine.

Historically sailors or their family and loved ones climbed the “Mariners’ Steps” to this chapel to pray for a safe return from the sea. It is to be expected therefore that the route up the steps is not easy. It is possible to drive but...More

Ashtonishing, over the cliff in a strong winding day. From a short walk from the Chapel you can have a sight from the high cliff of the Fecamp bay and all the cliffs around. Also the "Atlantic Wall" is still there.

Nice little chappel, well worth the (rather steep) walk from the town of Fecamp. Especially the views from here are very nice indeed.

A beautiful little chapel built on the site of a much older chapel from the 11th century. We drove up - a big car park - but keen pilgrims can ascend up the pilgrims way - quite a climb. After the chapel walk towards the...More

The chapel itself is a seafarers chapel in memory of those lost at sea. There are numerous paintings of boats at the inside entrance of the chapel. You have a great view from the surroundings and it is well worth the climb up the hill...More
