“Monet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Made famous by Monet. Quite plain inside by most cathedrals' standards. Surrounded by interesting areas.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

There was a lot of renovation going on outside, including a large crane that detracted from the spire and steeple. The inside was beautiful - loved the stained glass and the tombs of the earlier kings, including Richard the Lionheart (supposedly only his heart is here in Rouen). Very interesting and lots of history.

“Impressive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

The cathedral in Rouen is an impressive Gothic structure - we enjoyed walking around taking in the sheer scale of the cathedral and the stained glass windows.

The tomb of Richard the Lionheart got the kids excited (as they have been reading about him at school) - apparently his heart is stored in a lead casket in the treasury.

Learnt that the Butter Tower is so called because it was built by funds collected from rich people who didn't want to give up butter for Lent.

“WOW one of the best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

We are touring the cathedrals of France and absolutely loved the Rouen cathedral. The architecture is stunning and light. We visited it 3 times in 2 days.
