Constructed between 1030 and 1880 in the Gothic style, Rouen Cathedral is one of the great Medieval cathedrals of France.
It's located in the town of Rouen in Normandy, and is familiar from the over 30 paintings made of it by the artist Monet. Highlights include the 12th century nave, the decorative sculptures around the main door, the beautiful stained glass windows and the tomb containing the heart of England's Richard the Lionheart.
The crypt contains tombs dating back to the 10th century. Music has always been important here, and in 1600 the cathedral's organ was renovated to become one of the largest in France.Places nearby:
