Spectacular especially as we ate our dinner at Le Petite Jeanne restaurant while watching the show. Love all of the Rouen area.

Wonderfully stunning, magnifique, it's the only way to describe Rouen Cathedral. The exterior is brilliant, with beautiful architecture, and once inside the magnificence continues. Damaged during WW2, it has been put back together again to offer the visitor a wonderful experience.

Living in Rouen, I always visit this beautiful cathedral each time I have friends or family coming. In Summer, great illuminations in the evening.

You have to see it to believe it how extensive this Cathedral was decorated on the outside. On that point, it can easily compete with most of the Italian cathedrals (like the one in Milano). The interior is somewhat more modest and returns you to...More

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
