Part of the many churches in Rouen, this one is amazingly beautiful and richly decorated. Since been restaured at great expenses, it is worth visiting, before or after strolling in the nearby pedestrian area, full of antics dealers, cafés et restaurants. Do not miss the Aître St Maclou, the former arts school, glorious set of beautiful buildings. A shame it... More

Very thought provoking entering this beautiful restored church. It was partially bombed by the Allies during WW ll during raids in the area against the enemy. Fully restored to it's pre-war beauty, spend some time here to reflect.

Very impressive, you will get some great photographs here. I would advise seeing the cathedral, Abbey and this church which can be done as a short walking tour of 1 to 2 hours including spending plenty of time in each.

This is a Gothic church in miniature - it's as tall as others, but it is much smaller and due to lack of land when building is actually almost circular. It is a lovely example of Gothic Architecture. Given the limited floor space the church is nevertheless quite large, and there is a feeling of being dwarfed by its grandeur... More

Flamboyant is right! The decorative flourishes are astounding. Standing in the square in front of the church you feel dwarfed by its size and grandeur. On entry the them continues, now in both stone and wood. It is a magnificent example of stone work and the exuberant dedication of Christians of the Middle Ages.

This is a Gothic church in miniature - it's as tall as others, but it is much shorter both in length and width. The most noticeable things about it are the wooden arch of the crucifix that separates the nave from the transept, the gorgeous wooden carvings on many of the doors and in the church itself, and the huge...

Another beautiful church. Stumbled upon this by accident and was impressed. Kind of running out of words after seeing so many churches now.

...not open Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. We were there on a Wednesday. We did enjoy viewing the outside. We were told the Plague Cemetery was nearby but we couldn't find that either....even with a map.

Went to a fabulous concert in this lovely church. So relaxing to watch the evening light through the windows while listening to a trio play Mozart.
