  • It was the first church we visited during our stay in the city of Caen. Within a photographic exhibition makes us realize just as it appeared the city after the devastating bombing of the second world war. Are also contained part of the Bell and the remains of those famous days, with high emotion for those who can only imagine what could be staying there in those days. The Church is well worth a few minutes to visit with merits and enjoyable, as well as in other churches in the city not much crowding. Free admission.

  • The picture of the Church after the bombings of World War II leaves no room for imagination, had remained very little! The restoration, however, did not prevent the left nave to collapse so the effect you have by looking at the façade of the Church is something that slowly glides to the left. Simple. Remarkable a statue of Notre Dame de Protection, 600, revered in the city.

  • Beautiful church hidden behind a square. Impressive volumes. The sobriety of the decorations. Beautiful organ. A small exhibition retraces the reconstruction of the Church after the destruction of the war.

  • Pretty Church. The "tower" built at the crossroads of the transepts offer an interesting skylight: the stone is worked and finely carved.
