It took four centuries to build this beautiful church, and it shows. Built on the location of a St. Catherine chapel, the church is famous for being a major pilgrimage stop to Saint-Jacques of Compostella. The architecture is mostly Gothic, with some Renaissance touches. The highlights are:

  • The Wall of Sauvages frieze
  • Carvings brought back by sailors
  • The Rose window
  • Statue of Sainte-Jacques at the entrance
  • The flamboyant flying buttresses
  • The magnificent scowling gargoyles

When you visit, you will find it thankfully quiet and free of too many tourists. It’s wonderfully peaceful in here, and that makes for an excellent place for quiet contemplation.

  • Site magnifique...une ruine à restaurer..faire une demande à Rome pour sa sauvegarde..

  • Très bien accueilli le prêtre est génial, l'église est magnifique

  • L'église (XIIe au XVIe) siècles est dédiée à saint Jacques et relève des styles flamboyant et Renaissance : commencée dès le XIIe siècle, l’église Saint-Jacques est érigée en paroisse en 1282 par Guillaume de Flavacourt archevêque de Rouen. La chorale de la paroisse répète le samedi matin, les chants sont magnifiques et incite à la prière. L'église est magnifique, la pierre sculptée ressemble à de la dentelle, les peintures sur les piliers sont un chemin de croix.

  • Très belle et authentique cathédrale au centre ville de Dieppe
