Saint-Vulfran Cathedral

Gaze up at the twin towers of this historic church and appreciate its triangular patterns, grand arches and pleasant garden.

With its flamboyant Gothic façade, Saint-Vulfran Cathedral is one of the iconic highlights of Abbeville. The 17th-century church is a hub of great art and religion with its range of sculptures, dazzling décor and magnificent architecture. Take a seat on a pew and enjoy the relaxed ambiance in Abbeville’s spiritual home.

Relax in the spacious plaza and garden outside the cathedral. The cobblestone square is pedestrianized. Capture photos of the imposing façade that is reminiscent of Paris’ Notre Dame. Enter through the main portal and then stroll through the relatively small nave to appreciate its charming, serene atmosphere. See the quaint choir and look up at the impressive ceiling pattern.

Take a guided tour of the church in the afternoon to learn its intriguing history and the artistic treasures on show. Admire the altarpiece that recalls the Nativity scene. Marvel at the intriguing statues of the Virgin Mary by artist Pierre Lheureux. Discover the mesmerizing stained glass windows by artist William Einstein.

The church has its roots in the 13th century but was almost entirely rebuilt in the 1600s. It just about survived World War II with heavy damages and was restored to its original grandeur during the 20th century. Organize a guided tour at the nearby tourism office. There is a small fee, although kids and young teenagers go free.

Opening times differ, depending on the day of the week and time of year. The church tends to open from morning until late afternoon, with later opening times on Sunday and Monday.

Saint-Vulfran Cathedral is on an important road of the same name right in the center of the city. It is a 5-minute walk east from the banks of La Somme River in a busy area full of shops and restaurants. Nearby, you will find the Beffroi, which is one of the oldest bell towers in France. There is parking outside the church.
