#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.

  • Imposing, at the heart of the city, this majestic Cathedral is missing maybe a step back, but it's really a great Church.

  • Take the time... ask yourself... look, listen... enjoy every moment of the day from East to West the Sun will light up the stained glass windows to better make you discover... The northern light is effectively offer the discovery of stained glass where every moment will be dazzling. Beaming and Flamboyant... a delight of architecture the organ you will be amazing and if leaning the ear the sound suddenly becomes a nice visit to all perfection... Remember that it is a place of worship... prayer... let your burden is by spending you will feel light. good to you
