Basilique Notre Dame (Cathedral of Notre Dame)
The present Cathedral was built in the early 19th century on the site of the old Mediaeval church which was destroyed after the Revolution, and was inspired by St Paul’s Cathedral, St Peter’s in Rome, the Panethéon and Les Invalides in Paris. Its huge dome is visible throughout the city and reaches a height of 101m. Of particular interest is the High Alter of the Princess of Torlonia, decorated with 19th century Italian mosaic. The Cathedral also has the second largest crypt in France, which contains various gold and silver religious artefacts, inlcuding the Reliquary of the Holy Blood.
Calvaire des Marins (Sailors’ Cavalry)
Built to resemble the hull of a boat, the Calvaire des Marins is a sanctuary dedicated to the memory of sailors lost at sea. The poignant chapel is decorated with commemorative plaques and coloured buoys; coloured for the boats still at sea and black and white for those that never returned. Visitors can also enjoy views of the port, the sea and, on a clear day, across to England.
