The first time I visited Rouen, I was very sad that I was not there on one of the days that Saint Maclou is open to the public (Saturday, Sunday and Monday afternoons), because the exterior is very beautiful and I thought the inside might be equally compelling. This time, since we were staying for 3 weeks, we had ample... More

The "bow" spanning the interior is very rare, so worth the visit, and it's free so don't hesitate to step in

Everyone will be visiting the Notre Dame, but this gem is just what your visit needs to make it complete. The square is almost cosy with the well kept houses and charming restaurants.

It's possible that the architecture is even more over the top than The Cathedral.The church is white and literally smothered in carvings and detail like the most outrageous wedding cake you've ever seen.

We are big fans of churches and cathedrals and this was amazing! Especially the outside I would say, very gothic and so many ornaments! A very amazing suspended crucifixion inside that I have never seen before! Entry is free!

Again, another example of gothic flamboyance!! particularly striking is the suspended crucifixtion which I have never seen before. In terms of the Gothic! I would say that personally speaking, there is more to see than in Paris.

Beautiful gothic church in the heart of Old Rouen, this church has put it all on the outside looks, with its numerous sculptures and decorations. From the inside, it is a cold and undecorated church that has not a lot to offer. Entry is free.

When we walk in this church, our first impression was like step into part of history, everything look age and retain in the original condition from the day it was built, we felt lucky to be here, found a treasure from some long distance past history.

An amazing example of the flamboyant gothic style. Though severely damaged in WW2, nicely restored. Imposing internal vaults and external carved open windows.

This is a stunning example of Flamboyant Gothic architecture in Old Rouen. We saw the exterior but never got inside even though our apartment was a block away--it's closed on Tues., Wed., and Thurs., the 3 days we happened to be in Rouen.
