We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Saints Mere Eglise Catholic Church. We are a US family of 5 with 2 teenagers and a college freshman. We were at a D Day tour when we visited the church. The church had two beautiful stained glass windows...More

Nice late mediaval church where private John Steel got stuck to the bell tower in WWII. Visit is free of charge.

This church was at the heart of the D-Day story, and is worth visiting and also to see the museum across the street. The Stained Glass Windows are worth the visit!

The folk lore associated with this church is legendary. An American paratrooper during the Normandy invasion snags his chute on a church spite and hangs there all night and unbeknownst to the Germans. You can definitely imagine his predicament.
