Eglise Sainte-Catherine

Notre Dame in Paris is a household name. It is a popular Gothic cathedral and a backdrop and a namesake for movies. A stone structure built as a response to the power of the monarch, it is awe inspiring.

However, it was the Eglise Sainte-Catherine in Honfleur that captured my imagination. Off the beaten path, Eglise Sainte-Catherine was built by mariners as a temporary wooden structure after a war. The interior resembles the hull of a ship.
