Cathedrale Notre Dame de Evreux, Evreux

(4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful Cathedral, huge inside. A must see when you come to Evreux. The environment around the Cathedral is very beautiful to see, the mirror of water, for example.

  • It is one of the great Gothic cathedrals of France. It is a beautiful Gothic Cathedral. And worth it if you're in Paris approaching there to view its cathedral wander the town and eat excellent food Norman. It is a real pleasure for the sight and senses.

  • The Cathedral esplanade puts value this historic monument. The night, in the dark, lighting highlights this building. Inside, an organ with modern architecture welcomes you through the main entrance.
