The Sainte-Trinité basilica was built on the site of an existing church in the 11th Century on the orders of William, Duke of Normandy (later William I of England). Over the following four hundred years or so it was damaged, altered and enlarged until we get the large Gothic style church we see today.
It is one of the few structures to survive the destruction of World War II in Cherbourg and just about the only building that is even remotely medieval.
