Cathedrale Notre Dame de Evreux, Evreux
(4.5/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • From the outside, the Cathedral of our Lady of Evreux is already great. When you enter, you feel first the fresh typical religious buildings followed by this tender Woody smell all too recognizable. You can't miss the huge organ that has the gift of making you feel a little thing. The stained glass windows are also worth the look, color mixture is harmonious, even mesmerizing. More with RESTful quiet that reigns there, you can be sure to not be disappointed by this visit you will not soon forget.
