  • A great example of the gothic style in architecture. For catholics it's a beautiful church for some quiet time.

  • We stopped by Caen on the way back from Omaha for dinner. We passed the church which was beside the wall of the Caen castle. Half of the tower was lit with blue light, giving it an eerie look, almost like the light was leaking from inside the tower. It was interesting to look at while waiting at the stop lights. It is quite different from other churches at night. We didn't go in but it would have been interesting to see if the blue light was also used inside.
  • St Peter's church in Caen is a great religious construction built in 13th to 16th century. It's near the castle. Important historical events took place in the church.
