The Abbey Quarter

Saint-Vaast Abbey and Cathedral

Situated on the Rue de Doumer facing the Place de la Madelaine. The cathedral and abbey are stunning pieces of 18th century architecture and make up the largest religious edifice in France from that era. Built on the ancient prayer site of la Madelaine Hill (6th century), the site in and around these buildings has previously revealed superb archaeological finds. The cathedral's neo-classical style and the bright fresh interior will delight all that visit it. The abbey boasts buildings of 175 metres long and the portal opens out onto the main courtyard through which you can enter the Museum of Fine Arts, whose galleries lie around the outside of the Main Cloister and the Wel courtyard.
