Parked here in Mantes la Jolie to find coffee while en route to Charles de Gaulle airport, walked down the street and were blown away by the sudden sighting of this magnificent church. It soars above the rather mean streets below, and it stopped us...More

There isn't a lot to see in this small town but of course, there is a huge church. This church dates back to the eleven hundreds. It did sustain some damage during the French Revolution. The most prominent feature of this church is the stained...More

Quick side trip off the Paris-Rouen highway into this town to check out the 'Collegiale'. Scale is impressive and some intricate details. Worth a quick trip off the motorway. Not much else in the town though.

If maybe I wouldnt normally go to visit this city just for this church (very much destroyed, the city no the church, by the war), I would definitely recommend stopping. The church is very beautiful from the inside as well as the outside.

Do not be dissuaded by the line. It moves quickly and Notre Dame is worth the visit. Besides, the length of time allows you to peruse the outside. Look for the saints and sinners. Both are easy to find. And look for the kings of...More

We visited Notre Dame to fill in a little time before arriving at our hotel a little down river. We were pleased to discover a living vibrant cathedral which even contained the "stations of the cross" and a community of parishioners making the main space...More

You cannot miss it ! From the A13 highway from Paris to Rouen (exit 11), you'll see two big towers looking like Paris Notre-Dame: here is the collegiale Notre-Dame, built during the XIIth century. Admiring the three beautiful carved doors from the XIIth to the...More
