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.

The Basilica is visible from the minute you enter the Old town Walk up to it, take some photos. There is a staircase leading up to the wall where the view is very nice too. Quiet, green (full of grass and trees). There are some...More

I'm sure this building is of great interest to architects, designed as it was by a self-taught architect priest, and the dome is a marvel. But I found the inside to be somewhat unspiritual and gloomily depressing. I was put off instantly by the displays...More

It's worth the money to see the historic crypt. It was cool and calm on a hot day after the uphill walk to the old town,

Really interesting interior. Just walk in and take a round. Amount of eye catching small details is impressive. It has own soul.

Pretty cathedral, pretty inside and out. Worth visiting, it's in the old town. I'd recommend the crypt too. Also you can walk the city wall.

The outside of the Notre Dame is rather impressive, but the interior seems to be decaying at lightspeed. It's one of the few landmarks in Boulogne-sur-Mer so be sure to visit, although it won't take you long.

The church has been neglected for too long, with the result that the frescos have worn in the damp conditions and the plaster is cracking. This is neglect on a major scale, and is a disgrace to the town and people of Boulogne.

We've been to some stunning churches and cathedrals, but this isn't one of them. The nave is pretty empty and uninspiring with ceilings peeling and little to no decoration. Given that the cupola is far better and grand it feels more like a separate building......More
