Every Sunday between July 10 and August 21, the Notre-Dame de la Visitation association offers guided tours of the church.

The church of Blonville – Terre, Notre-Dame de la Visitation (XNUMXth century), already has a long history of almost a thousand years behind it! Indeed, part of the bell tower is dated to the XNUMXth century. Its history is inseparable from that of Blonville-sur-Mer. The place where the church is built may seem incomprehensible today, with the development since the end of the XNUMXth century of Blonville-sur-Mer on the coast, but during the past centuries, the population of Blonville was essentially rural and the coastal edge seemed inhospitable. Especially with the marsh which was much larger than at present.

In 1859, the archaeologist Arcisse de Caumont delivers a precise description of the current church. It is oriented East-West, as with all churches. What appears to be the oldest are the bases of the bell tower and the Choir, dating from the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries. Undoubtedly the primitive building occupied the current Choir and bell tower. This modest ensemble was completed from the end of the XNUMXth century by a large nave. This expansion takes place after the end of the Hundred Years War during which Normandy had suffered terribly from the presence of English and French troops and their mercenaries. The end of the XNUMXth century, which corresponds to the Renaissance, saw a remarkable demographic development supported by an increase in resources, mainly agricultural, and wealth. Constructions of this type are then again possible.

Without reservation.
