The church of Santa Catalina has the distinction of having a bell tower separate from the main building, and is the country's largest wooden church. The main hall is the oldest part (from the 15th century) and was built after the Hundred Years War. Years later, the tower was built a safe distance from the church since it attracts lightning during storms. In the 16th, a second hall was added to the existing ones. This is a very interesting building that you can't miss if you find yourself in the area.
The fact that the great musician Satie was born here or that Courbet and Monet formed the Honfleur school, the seed of the Impressionist movement, wouldn't surprise anyone who knows this place. Its light and special beauty has been home to artists, and art galleries are spread along its streets, plus cafes, why not say it all? Staying at Les Maisons de Léa and dining at Lieutenance, in addition to having a beer in the sun at the harbor are ideal choices to continue a dream weekend in this wonderful place.
The town of Honfleur is one of those French towns which surprise you by its beauty, its corners, for its smells and its wonderful market full of fruits, flowers, cheese and hundreds of wonderful handicrafts. The walk next to the harbor and through the streets, simply wandering this wonderful place is worth a stop on the way and making a stop in this small northern French town.
