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?

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
