Chapel of Notre-Dame du Bon Secours

    The Romanesque tower (12th century) is the only vestige of the original church of Gatteville next to which the current church was reconstructed in the 18th century. Transformations of the same period have affected the name of the mariners' chapel, Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours, which was however to retain its 11th century apse. The site was built over the location of an ancient Merovingian cemetery.
