It is a huge cathedral and the west front, painted by so many Turner and Ruskin as well as Monet, is very impressive. The Cathedral was lucky to survive the 1944 bombs and a lot of the glass has yet to br replaced. That said...More

Monet’s masterful Impressionist paintings of the west front of Rouen’s Cathedral of Notre Dame are 19th C artistic interpretations of this Gothic masterpiece. In spite of an abundance of tourists, the cathedral’s exterior views offer insight to what Monet experienced, as a placard is set...More

Gargoyles, dark spires, gothic architecture. Amazing. It is so impressive. The cobblestone alleys around the church gave me the impression of being in Diagonal Alley.

Spectacular cathedral and history. Breathtaking and hard to believe this cathedral is over 800 years old and destroyed during WW2. The dedication to rebuild the cathedral is an inspiration. Worth taking a day trip from Paris to visit the cathedral and beautiful city of Rouen.

A must-see in Rouen. This historic cathedral is full of history and beauty and also pays tribute to the many citizens who endured such hardships and who struggled to rebuild their beloved cathedral after the war. A very moving visit.

I could not believe how this beautiful cathedral resembled the artists' drawings. It is very close to the waterway and thankfully, was spared during the WWII bombings. Do not miss this!

We had a guide from our River Cruise as we toured this beautiful structure.... It did seem as if EVERY single city along the Seine had its own Notre Dame... but it was wonderful to compare them....

We did see docents in the Cathedrale giving tours in several languages... we did not see where you arranged these tours. Looked in the gift shop but no luck. Don’t miss the Joan d’Arc museum near the Cathedrale. Very well... More
