Church of St. Christopher, Bénerville-sur-Mer



This 12th century Romanesque church located on the hillside facing the sea, offers a fine viewpoint over the Bay of Seine.

Its bell dates from 1596. The inscriptions have virtually disappeared, only ‘Chevalier de l’Ordre de Malte’ (Knight of the Order of Malta) remains.
Outside, you will notice a gravestone adorned with a Templars cross, together with fine herring-bone features.
The building houses architectural and decorative curiosities, including a triumphant arch, a wooden statue of the Virgin Mary, two fine 18th century painted wooden statues (including one of St. Christopher) and a Louis XIV style high altar.
