Cathedrale Notre Dame de Evreux, Evreux

4.5
#1 of 13 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.

  • The Evreux Cathedral of architectural styles between the time Roman and Renaissance. The building is of Gothic style flamboyant and radiating. It has a great contemporary organ and beautiful stained glass windows.

  • looking for a restaurant, I fell in the district for the town of Evreux (27). Very beautiful building. but I was attracted by a Bell sound and I me preview that I found myself a 2 steps from the Cathedral. I went there and I was able to visit it. It's a beautiful building with an architecture so impressive has the outside inside. Inside it's like in all the churches, you can do the full tour. To stop has what they call the treasure Chapel. Very nice rooms very protected because when we see them we understand. Here you can be like me is to say have no religious conviction but go anyway.

  • Cathedral with stained glass of great beauty. The organ located above the entrance to the Cathedral may surprise by its very modern style, but when he starts to play, you are fascinated and you fall under the spell. A magical moment that you may wish to see never stop. Essential to visit

  • Great place!
  • it good in sumner
  • 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.

  • Beautiful Cathedral with a beautiful stained glass windows, an original and modern organ even futuristic. Beautiful esplanade in front with beautiful flowers.

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