On the heights of Quiberville-sur-Mer come and admire the Saint-Valéry church which dates from the 12th century. Made of stone, sandstone and flint, it was greatly remodelled in the 16th century and was therefore consecrated again.
The church is dedicated to Saint Valéry because legend tells us that he had this building built and decided on its location. In fact, every night he moved the stones to this place and therefore opposed the will of the villagers who had opted for a different location.
It should be noted that this place of worship was for a long time neglected and even deteriorated, particularly by the religious wars, which explains the numerous restorations. The last one dates from the beginning of the 21st century and this is how the building received the ruban du Patrimoine in 2006 for the great work accomplished by the town and the Association for the preservation of the Saint-Valéry church in Quiberville-sur-Mer.
This church is open on request, so do not hesitate to contact us to discover inside many objects and furniture registered or even designated a Historic Monuments.
