I do a lot of genealogy and was prepared to visit three churches/cathedrals where my ancestors were baptized/married or buried in Normandy. My 15th Great Grandfather, Jehan Boucher (1486-1569) was one of the architects for the King of France and worked on this church. It is documented information. We attended Mass and I was able to sing the Mass with... More

Nice, compact in a small square even if a big structure! Used for muscal performances, there is a nice light and on the square there are small amnd old houses which shouldn t miss! And on the corner a great great cakes-shop, fresh fruit pastries the best!

This is the second church of Rouen that is behind the major church. No distinguishing characteristics. Also no entrance charge.

A beautiful church in a lovely peaceful area - not too far from the centre of the city and worth the walk

This church is noted as the best example of Flamboyant Gothic architecture in France. Construction of the church began in 1435. The decorations of the Church are very macabre ( dark, brooding, etc.) which is consistent with the Black Plague which was ravaging this region at that time. It's western facade is towerless with 5 gilded porches. Patrons of the... More

The church exterior was being cleaned when we visited, but it barely detracted from the beauty of the church. The artisanship displayed alone in the exterior of st. Maclou is worth the visit. We were unable to enter, but the surrounding streets made the visit worthwhile also. This part of Rouen is older than we can fathom as Americans, and... More

We only saw the outside of this church, but it was beautiful - a wonderful example of late Gothic architecture. Its setting in a rather quaint old square added to the effect too.

Another nice old church with a ton of history and art. The stained glass is from 15th century. Much of the glass is left survived WWII. I would make another visit to this site. You only need about 1 hour for a visit.

The Church of Saint Maclou,is in a beautiful setting, and well worth the visit. Although smallish [75 by 180 feet long] the church has a richness in its decoration with perforated gables. The pointed tracery looked like flickering flames to me and typical of the flamboyant French style.
