Church Sainte-Catherine

Monument in Lille

Located at Lille, in the heart of the Vieux-Lille district, the Sainte-Catherine church is a three-aisled hall church built in the 13th century. Dedicated to Saint Catherine of Alexandria, it is similar to the style of the Flemish hallekerques.

Listed as an historic monument, the church of Sainte-Catherine de Lille is a magnificent building in flamboyant Gothic style which has only one level. Erected at the start of the 16th century, its famous square tower houses the oldest bell in the city and was embellished at the end of the 18th century with an optical telegraph by Chappe. On its north wall, reclusoirs, cells used to accommodate pious people, were visible between the 17th and 18th centuries.

Inside, it is possible to admire magnificent works, like the carved wooden furniture of the second half of the 19th century or the set of paintings revealing the Doctors of the Church from the 17th century or even Saint Mathieu, Saint John the Evangelist, Saint Mark or Saint Luke by Victor Mottez.

It is also difficult to miss the stained glass window depicting the Triumph of Saint Catherine made in the 19th century or the paneled cradles of the ceilings brought back to light in the second half of the 19th century.
