Church of Notre-Dame

The church was built between the 13th and 15th centuries by Flemish Masons but using English architects’ plans, thus creating a very original building in a mixture of Flemish and English styles. In 1691 a water cistern was built on the north side of the nave to collect rainwater for drinking in case of a siege. The church was used for the wedding of General Charles De Gaulle and his wife Yvonne, who came from Calais, in 1921. The church suffered damage during World War II and renovation is still ongoing.
