Saw this large church on our ship and decided to take a walk. It was very surprising to see it front and its inside. Simply beautiful.

We wandered through the city visiting the small shops. It was a quiet walking trip and got to visit the local culture and pick up items to take home.

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 in our tracks. With a long history during which it has been razed, rebuilt, sacked and bombed, its size is astounding, and the beauty of the interior matches that of the outside. There are amazing stained glass windows that are worth visiting for themselves.

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 class windows. They are huge and they are colorful. There are many lovely side altars and many interesting statues.

The 12th century was great for many forgotten things but in building cathedrals they excelled beyond comparison. In fact reading the informative notes, i deduce that the vault hight in the choir was considered the 'skyscraper' of its day, at 157 feet.... and was the climax in France's upwardly aspiring Gothic architecture . Its easy to ogle the sculptures of past monarchies outside and inside there is a plethora of sinners and saints. While the crowds seemed excessive, i found just standing still near a solid pillar, better to appreciate the colour and soaring elements
