Notre Dame de Grace is a lovely little chapel on the Plateau de Grace, 2 km west of the Vieux Bassin. It sits on a wooded hill about 100m high and offers the most stunning views of Honfleur. Built in the years between 1600 and 1615, it replaced an older chapel that was destroyed in a landslide. The esplanade offers some breathtaking views of the Siene estuary, Le Havre and Pont de Normandie.
Pilgrims have contributed to the chapel with marble plaques that express their gratitude for answered prayers. The mariners show their contribution through models of ships that hang from the ceiling. This chapel with its bucolic setting and chiming bells has had some pretty famous visitors including Napoleon, Louis XIII and Pierre Berthelot.
