|Collegiate Church of Saint-Vulfran|
|Collégiale Saint-Vulfran d'Abbeville|
|Groundbreaking||7 June 1488|
The construction of the church was started on 7 June 1488. From 31 August it was clear that funding would be an issue and thus the construction was ceased for some time. On 4 April 1520 Jean Crétel of Tours-en-Vimeu was commissioned to lead the work. The nave would be under construction until 1539. Construction resumed 120 years later when the choir was built in two years, from 1661 to 1663 in a more simplified style.
As the French Revolution took place, the church became a Temple of Reason and a feast was celebrated in honor of the Supreme Being on 8 June 1794. Catholic worship in the church resumed in 1803. The church was listed as a Monument historique in 1840.
