Rouen is really beautiful with a lot of places to be visited, but the Cathedral Notre-Dame is very special. Also with kids can be be very interesting to have a good time with a huge historical background. Enjoy it!

I visited it on Christmas eve when they had Christmas market outside the cathedral. The architecture is gothic with extreme intricate details. I recommend buying tickets in advance. Its the highlight of Rouen (Visited Dec2016)

When we entered at the main entrance of the cathedral, we were not allowed to go in until we paid an entrance fee to some obviously *not catholic* thugs just outside the door. Has anyone else experienced this?

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.

A most impressive cathedral! It is an enormous gothic cathedral with such a high ceiling. It is free to enter. The front of this cathedral is mind blowing. There are countless spires. There is such an abundance of statues and ornamentation that we stood there...More
