It's hard not to contemplate a visit to this basilique once in this (relatively small) town. Basilique has an interesting history, boasts largest crypt in France and miraculous statue of St.Mary. Welcoming and helpful staff.

Incredible to think that Notre Dame is the most impressive building in old Boulogne but is in a very poor state of repair. Walls and plaster are crumbling and wall paintings are disappearing--what a shame.

Located just inside one of the main gates to the old town, the building is a little run down but well worth a quick visit - allow 20 minutes. The crypt down stairs is open but there is an entrance fee.

Well worth a stroll to the interior of this walled city. Didn't go inside as it was closed at time of visit. Lovely walk around the grounds. Restaurants bars and souvenir shops all within this area. Lovely garden for children also.
