The Saint Maurice Church is a Roman Catholic church that is situated in the historic centre of Lille, France. Construction of the church started back in the 14th century but it wasn't until the 19th century that the Neo-Gothic church we see today was fully constructed. The church has five naves which are all the same height and its interior is adorned with paintings from Lille artists. Its central chapel is dedicated to a man who protected the city from 1485 onwards, Sainte-Barbe.
The church is a short walk away from the ‘Gare Lille Flandres’ bus and metro stations. If travelling by car, parking directly around the church can be rather limited but car parks are not too far of a distance away from the sight.
Opening Times and Admission
The church is open to visitors on most days of the week. You will be allowed to have a look at the church. You can also attend services at the church, mainly on Sundays.
