Stunning

After visiting the Rouen Cathedral we came to see the St. Maclou's Church. This is like the small brother of the cathedral.
A must to see!

Fabulous facade
Sep 2019
Another amazing church in Rouen, with great carvings on the outside. The rounded entrance at the front is really beautiful. Due to its popularilty it was very busy inside and we couldn't really appreciate it. Visit at quiet time to do it justice.

The details in the exterior architecture are wonderful. It is incredibly ornate and beautiful. St. Maclou should be visited while in Rouen.

How many Churches??
Oct 2019
Yet another architectural marvel. Just when you thought you'd seen all this one pops up round the corner. Rouen is certainly a place for big Churches and Catherdrals. The exterial ia a wonder to be seen. Again, you stand and admire the splender.

Staggering external detail
Sep 2019
The exterior of the church is impressive, flamboyant with incredible decoration. Inside the height of the nave is awesome but like too many French ecclesiastical buildings it looks grubby and unloved. Side chapels around the apse seem to have been stripped bare with no idea if they will ever be restored. The interior is a disappointment after the promise of the exterior.

A little different to the other churches nearby - very ornate and placed in a lovely area of the city. Very light and spacious

Amazing architecture, especially from the outside
Jul 2019
This church, located in a small square of pittoresque wooden buildings, is an architectural gem, especially the outside. The architecture is not your usual one for churches in this region, making it all the more special. The interior is rather bare. Note that the church is closed on Fridays.

than the Cathedral?
Probably not but it is adjacent to the Cathedral and is definitely a must visit for the stunning architecture. There is even a model of this church in the fine arts museum.
Must vitit in Rouen IMHO
