a must!
Sep 2021
This is one of the top five gothic cathedrals in France. It is spectacular. You step in front and you feel its immensity. The interior is like most of this type of churches, huge spaces, columns, vitrals... It has a painting in its main altar.
Perfect for taking photos.

Gorgeous cathedral and so much to see inside. The architecture is amazing and seeing all of the stained glass and intricate details inside is just breathtaking. This is a must see in Rouen.

A magnificent Cathedral.
Oct 2021 • Friends
This Gothic cathedral is magnificent. You can see the towers from afar as you approach the city and so is a handy landmark! The towers all have different styles and one is called the Butter Tower because of its colour and the fact that the faithful could eat butter there during lent if they paid a dispensation. The Gothic Style Cathedral was first started in the 1100s on the sight of previous cathedrals. It was enlarged over many centuries and also suffered damage during various French Wars and also the two World Wars. The front facade is an elaborate work with 3 portals depicting various scenes. Inside the numerous stained glass windows are in different styles. Among the various tombs of the Dukes of Normandy you can find the tomb of Richard the Lionheart which contains the King’s heart. Well worth a visit.

Cathedral of Light show was amazing
Aug 2021
This Cathedral is stunning and absolutely worth a trip. I have seen the Cathedral twice now and it's spectacular no matter how many times I see it. In early Aug, I had the opportunity to visit for the Cathedral of Lights 2021. If you have a chance to go to Cathedral in the evening for this spectacular evening show, I highly recommend it. The audio visual presentation is about 30-45 minutes long. The projections overlay the Cathedral and it's a really unique way to see such an amazing piece of history.

A light show that is out of thus world
Aug 2021 • Family
This is a very attractive cathedral which to my mind is on a par with Notre Dame un Paris.

The cathedral itself has a very attractive exterior with its two different towers. The whole facade is intricately carved.

Inside is one of the most famous tombs in Christendom - that of the English king Richard the Lionheart who died whilst fighting in Limousun, France on the 26 March 1199, shot in the shoulder by a young French crossbowman, whom Richard 1l forfave before dying.

The interior itself is impressive in its stripped down Gothic style.

The light show held at 10 pm in the evening is spectacular. The first part was about William the Conqueror, and the second - the New World.

Fabulous, Now You Know Why Monet Came Here

This cathedral is spectacular. Come back several times to see how the light changes everything and how Monet's eye captured the changes in his different paintings.
