Hugh Church in a Small Town
Nov 2018
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.

Venables shopping trip

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.

Wonderful surprise
Aug 2018
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.

Another beautiful church
Apr 2018 • Couples
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.

Soaring elements spice up this magnificent edifice
Aug 2017 • Solo
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

Worth the detour
May 2017 • Couples
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.

worth stopping
Feb 2017 • Couples
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.

Notre Dame
Oct 2015 • Friends
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 France on the exterior. Inside, you will see crowds walking around even though Mass is being conducted. The stain glass is so beautiful, especially the Rose Window. Take time to look at all the sculptures. Although not those of Michelangelo in Rome, still incredible.
There is a small gift shop by the door. They have lovely things at a decent price for Paris. Good place for small gifts.

Nice collegiale

Worth the visit! A beautiful architecture! Never knew the difference between a collegiale and a cathedral though.

Still a living church.
Oct 2014 • Couples
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 ready for a later event.

The interior is strikingly bright and attractive.
