Cathedrale Notre-Dame, Le Havre

Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web
One of Le Havre's oldest buildings, Cathedrale Notre-Dame stands among a few lucky structures to have survived the destruction of World War II, although it did sustain heavy damage. Originally built in the 16th century, the church underwent multiple rounds of remodeling and reconstruction in the following centuries. When you visit the centrally located cathedral, it's hard to miss the building's unusually low profile, which stems from its construction on marshy ground. The cathedral features a mix of architectural styles, including an ornate Baroque exterior facade combined with a late medieval-era bell tower. Be sure to enter the building to explore its vaulted halls and naves, a collection of crucifixes, and the remains of an organ from the 1600s.

  • Temple, small in size, has the status of a cathedral. The first wooden church was built in 1520, soon after the founding of the city of Le Havre, and later he was destroyed and rebuilt many times. During the war, is also coming under fire, as evidenced by a marble sculpture of the lamentation of Christ. I wonder what a great body that you can see here, was presented to the Church by Cardinal Richelieu, a famous Prime Minister of King Louis XIII.

  • Pequena e aconchegante, a Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Le Havre é visita obrigatória para quem visita a cidade portuária que serviu de partida para milhares de famílias de emigrantes que deixaram a Europa no século XIX.
