Named after its patron saint, the Saint-Laurent church is located on the heights of Deauville. It overlooks the town and offers one of the most beautiful panoramas of the area.

Left abandoned at the time of the Revolution, the building was the parish church of the old village of Dosville since ancient times. Its architecture contains in its oldest bay a 12th century Plantagenet vault as well as narrow windows that look more like loopholes. It would seem that this religious building served as a defensive bulwark for the population that lived in the heights at the time, concentrated around its sanctuary. Everything about it evokes Romanesque art, especially the large door surmounted by a devout inscription.

The Saint-Laurent church was restored in 1977 with the participation of the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, a great art collector, renowned patron and friend of Deauville. For this action, he was made an honorary citizen of the city.

The church of Saint-Laurent was listed in the Inventaire supplémentaire des Monuments historiques on September 23, 1977.
