We were very fortunate to be in Rouen when the light show was on. Beautiful images are projected onto the front of the cathedral of historical events as it gets dark which is very late during the summer. It really is a wonderful experience.

This is a wonderful cathedral in the centre of Rouen. It has dominated the skyline for centuries and survived the bombings of World War 2. It has had restoration and some stained glass was lost. The facade is almost lace like and was painted in different light by Monet many times. It is very impressive and beautiful inside. Don't go... More

This was a beautiful cathedral. We saw a lot on our trip and could have gone without seeing a lot but this was worth the time. I absolutely loved this city and would love to go back and spend more time there.

I've seen much better Cathedral's in France...it is in pretty bad shape, very dark and depressing and extremely cold inside. Compared to Cathedral's in Reims, etc. it should be better taken care of.

This cathedral is amazing with all its little details all around the place. There is a little garden included and during the summer times the will show some 3D movies at the front of the Cathedral with the cathedral as the movie wall. Within these movies the history of Rouen and France will be covered during the time of the... More

A beautiful cathedral in a beautiful city. The carvings are stunning, both inside and outside. There is a lot to see in the cathedral and we spent a while just sitting listening to the organ.

Although we didn't spend a lot of time at this cathedral we saw enough to be enthralled by its beauty. The building is really so detailed and so very pretty, unlike Notre Dame in Paris the architecture was more "lacy" more "delicate" and feminine looking. A spectacular cathedral really worth seeing.
