The church was largely destroyed in the Great War. Well reconstructed example of the effort put into the rebuilding of nearly 1000 km of utterly ruined towns and villages

We visited the church on April 30th.There was a fair in the main streets, therefore we had to park on payed parking a few blocs away. The church has very nice stained glass windows. Take your time to admire the architecture of this church.

We visited this in early February and it epitomizes northern French church architecture. The Church is impressively large and well maintained. A must see if you are in Bethune

Hello Sophie, Thank's for your answer but it concerns the cathedral of Arras. I've seen the round Mirror in the Virgin Chapel and it's a really good idea developed by the association "Les amis de la Cathédrale d'Arras". Béthune's Church is called too "Saint Vaast"....More

Amazing, superb windows, architecture and statuary, a very impressive organ. Showing signs of wear and tear in places on the floor but nothing a cash injection couldn't fix.
