Cathedrale Notre Dame de Evreux, Evreux

4.5
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Evreux
Cathedrale Notre Dame de Evreux is one of the largest and finest cathedrals in France.The first cathedral was built in 1076, but destroyed in 1119 when the town was burned at the orders of Henry I of France to put down the Norman insurrection. He rebuilt the cathedral as an act of atonement to the Pope. Between 1194 and 1198, the conflict between Philippe Auguste and Richard the Lion-hearted damaged the new cathedral. The architecture of the present edifice shows this history, with its blend of Romanesque and Gothic styles. As is common with many areas and buildings of Normandy, this cathedral suffered greatly from the Second World War.

    This Cathedral mentioned in 912, worth a stop for a visit. It is in Gothic style. The nave has a beautiful stained-glass windows. 13 notable chapels around the choir are wooden in the 16 th century. Beautiful religious building Normand.

    We went to Evreux only to stay overnight to break up a long journey, but it was a good choice! Out for a walk we found the Cathedral, which is glorious. I think the leaflet described it as 'flamboyant...  more »

    The Cathedral is the least interesting that we have visited in France at the moment. Little ornaments or statues, the chapels almost all closed preventing them from properly admire altarpieces and paintings. An ultra modern organ of 2007 comes complete this visit ultra fast and without much interest. A double issue in the face of 2 euros without real explanation on the building is proposed. Feel free to visit the Abbey Church of St Taurin instead.

    Pretty disappointing end. The façade is sad... and a heaviness! Inside the organ looks like a big bug that would have landed here...
