The Église St Joseph stands proud in the centre of reconstructed Le Havre. The steeple rises like a lighthouse visible from land and sea. I would highly recommend visiting the interior particularly later in the day as the sun descends in the sky and light plays on the stained glass and colors the airy concrete structure.

"You must climb the hill, crossing over the shadowy terraces with their yew and boxwood hedges, to reach Graville Abbey and appreciate its size, while feeling the wind coming off the channel and enjoying an unrivalled view over the city of Le Havre. Guillaume Malet de Graville, a companion of William the Conqueror, gave the site all of its grandeur after returning victoriously from the Battle of Hastings. The church that he built has the characteristics of Norman Romanesque architecture, with the exception of the Gothic choir. The conventual buildings (12th to 18th centuries), now a national museum, house one of the finest collections of mediaeval statuary in Normandy. Stone pieces, paintings, engravings and a variety of other ornaments and an astounding collection of more than 150 scale-model houses (1896-1936) complete the collection. In the gardens, a monumental statue of the Madonna and Child, known as the “Black Madonna”, is a popular site for prayer." - www.abbayes-normandie.com

We visited the library at opening hoursmand it was a pleasure the see the people using the building for diverse causes, like looking for books, listening music, working computers, privat reading in nice chairs, playing gam s. The building is nicely furnitired and there is a lot day light. Ans also more private places. People are all behaving can't mform the standard library visit rrequires. And as a tourist you could use all the facilties. A great place to visit.

A really amazing cathedral that was badly damaged by bombs in 1944 but even now stands proud after being restored. Outer walls bear the bomb scars. Really worth a visit.
