The historic city center is particularly remarkable, but the immediate vicinity of Honfleur are also exceptional: we put at your disposal in the apartment cards 18 walking tours allowing you to experience a few minutes of dream properties, points of views the sea and all the estuary of the Seine and sunken roads or you will feel alone as timeless.

  Tip: these circuits are particularly propistes to mountain biking.

The small seaside town invites you to discover its picturesque streets and old houses in the heart of a protected 37-hectare area established in 1974.

Both fishing port, commercial and marina, the city has managed to preserve and enhance a rich historical and artistic heritage.

Honfleur (formerly Honnefleu, Viking origin of the name) is a city that documents mention from the eleventh century, where it then is one of the major towns of the Duchy of Normandy. Our unrivaled location of estuarine port and seaport gives it, in fact, many benefits and determines its dual mission: defending the royal river and the departure of the great adventures on the ocean sea.

Walled city by Charles V in the fourteenth century, it plays an important defensive role against the English during the Hundred Years War and was actively associated with voyages of discovery undertaken to sixteenth and seventeenth, the famous expedition of Samuel de Champlain in 1608, which led to the founding of Quebec City ...

The sailors then Honfleur among the best in their kingdom and have the rare brotherhood relation of the famous Marco Polo. Charles VII wrote, moreover, that Honfleur was "the biggest and best supply of vessels Country of Normandy."

The seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the port is increasing its business to Canada, the Caribbean, the African coast and the Azores. This is a very active center for pilots, ship owners, merchants and even pirates. Among them, Pierre Berthelot, "pilot Major and cosmographer to the King of Portugal," became a monk under the name "Denis of the Nativity" and Jean-François Doublet, "an officer of the royal" privateer Jean Bart companion of Dunkirk.

In the early nineteenth century Honfleur is an exceptional artistic center: Eugène Boudin, a native of Honfleur, gathered around him many renowned artists, such Dubourg, Monet, Jongkind, Baudelaire ...

Back more than 1,000 years but incredibly preserved thanks to the creation in 1974 of a preservation area, Honfleur it holds the same fascination, especially the artists who are still very many to come shoot the witnesses of his glorious past and maritime history.

This is the seventeenth century that the fortifications are dismantled, by order of Colbert built a wet dock (now Old Harbour) and rise the salt warehouses. In the eighteenth century, thanks to increased trade with the West Indies, the shipyards are developing.

In the nineteenth century, Honfleur is an exceptional artistic center: Eugène Boudin, whose influence was decisive on the impressionist school, gathered around him many artist friends, including Jongkind, Monet and the poet Charles Baudelaire. In the twentieth century, to protect the ancient city, it is created a protected area

The city has its origins in this area, located behind the Town Hall and including, in particular, instead Boudin Arthur and Rue de la Ville.

In the fourteenth century to deal with the English invasion, the city is protected behind fortifications overlooking deep ditches which rattled like an island, which earned the pen name for this neighborhood.

Two suburbs extended from both sides sponsored by the churches of Saint Catherine and Saint-Leonard. L'Enclos hosted, among others, Notre Dame built in the twelfth century in the center of the current place Arthur Boudin, a cemetery, a hospital in the rue Saint-Antoine, a mansion, shops, a jail.

Nowadays remain in the old King's Road renamed rue de la Ville, the main artery of the Yard, two of the three salt warehouses built in 1670 Most of the stones used in their construction from the ancient walls of the city . Their structural oak is the result of work shipwrights of the time. These granaries allowed to store 10,000 tons of salt for the salt tax (special tax on this commodity), salt intended to fishing for cod on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland.

Both salt warehouses, classified as "Historic Monument" from 1916, owned by the city since 1952 and restored in the 1970s.

Today, prestige buildings, they welcome every year many cultural events including exhibitions, concerts, shows, conferences and seminars.

The Sainte-Catherine district developed during the construction of the city walls. Maritime area, "seafarers" have left their mark. Their old-timbered houses remain.

Dating from the second half of the fifteenth century, the St. Catherine church replaces an old stone church destroyed during the Hundred Years War. It was built by the inhabitants of the city after the British left. With so few resources they use as a raw material, wood from the forest Touques and knowledge in shipbuilding.

It was built in several "campaigns". The first dates from 1460 with the construction of the first ship, the North. With population growth, a larger church was necessary with the construction in 1496 of the second nave.

In the early nineteenth century, the interior of the church was given a dressing and a plaster neoclassical Greek porch columns replaced the original porch. Major restoration work was begun in 1879, notably with the disappearance of plastered the nave and the replacement of the current Greek porch porch in 1929.

Classified as "Historic Monument" in 1879, it attracted the attention of many archaeologists and historians: it is the largest church in France built of wood with a separate bell tower.

The bell tower, oak sturdy construction is built on the ringer house. Annex Eugène Boudin Museum, he has visited and religious works (sculptures, souvenirs of Charities and the Chapel of Our Lady of Grace).

At the end of Old Dock stands the Lieutenancy, so called because this monument was used from the seventeenth century as home to the Lieutenant of the King. This is the only significant remnant of the fortifications of the city, rebuilt over the centuries, especially in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. So it is very difficult today to recognize the traces of the fortified gate, called "Gate of Caen", who commanded the Middle Ages, the entrance to the fortress Honfleur. However, if you look closely, you can still see traces of both sides of tearing the old ramparts, which started from the Lieutenancy to surround the fortified city. These ramparts cut the current Vieux Bassin, who was the much narrower origin.

The door itself dates from the early seventeenth century. It is surmounted by a niche containing a statue of the Virgin Mary (Our Lady of the Port), and flanked by two graceful corbelled turrets, decorated with the arms of the city. It was preceded by a drawbridge and defended the north by a crenellated tower that no longer exists.

On the set of Grace is one of the oldest shrines in the region, surrounded by ancient trees.

The Chapel of Our Lady of Grace built in 1600-1615 by the bourgeois and sailors of Honfleur replaces an old chapel disappeared in a landslide of the cliff. The original chapel was founded before the year 1023 by Richard II Duke of Normandy, to fulfill a vow made during a storm where he almost died. Since the cult of Our Lady of Grace has continued.

Marble slabs and tables perpetuate the memory of famous people come to this chapel: Samuel De Champlain, Pierre Berthelot, Louis XIII, Bonaparte, Therese of Lisieux ...

Our Lady of Grace has outstanding ex-voto. All the faithful who come to pray at the shrine were seized and surprised by the sheer number of plates, models or inscriptions that reflect the general gratitude. All these ex-votos have a history. Their presence symbolizes the success of a vow, a recommendation, a prayer.

Naturally protecting marine holds a special place. But it can also include expressions of gratitude after healing or the fulfillment of a happy event.

Each year, Pentecost is the traditional theater of the Day Sailors during which it is possible to admire the picturesque and colorful procession ship models worn by children from the Place Sainte-Catherine to the chapel Notre Lady of Grace.
