Part of our walking tour. Do not miss. The dedication of the ship builders to their commitment to their God is more than inspirational.

Unique wooden church. Definitely worth stopping in to see. With a price of free you can’t go wrong and will most likely be impressed.

While it is the largest wooden church in France, and the bell tower is in another building, it is just another church (not my thing). I saw it as part of a group tour.
