Église N-D des Dunes

This modern church (1962) lies north of the abbey. Its undulating roof and navy-blue colour bleu recall the ocean waves, while its beige brick walls reflect the dunes. Inside, the stained-glass windows diffuse glistening light. The crypt contains a relic of St Idesbald who was an abbot of Dunes Abbey in the 12C.
