St. Maclou's Church, Rouen

(4.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Considered one of the best examples of the flamboyant style of Gothic architecture in France, St. Maclou's Church was built during the transition from the Romanesque period to the Gothic. Construction began sometime after 1432; this Roman Catholic church was to replace an existing parish church that had suffered from several years of neglect. Master mason Pierre Robin created a basilica-style church with four radiating chapels around an octagonal choir. The decoration is macabre, harkening to the church's grim roots in the black death pandemic. Flying buttresses above the aisles are attached to the western wall, which features a rose window. By using our Rouen tour planner, you can arrange your visit to St. Maclou's Church and other attractions in Rouen.

  • Everything in roundness and the lace of a stone carving wooden door to the thousand characters of the sculpted Gospels. This church is a wonderful smooth and looking in detail. If you come to Rouen don't forget...

  • Impossible to visit this church because... CLOSED! This church is not open every day! Explanation, it belongs to the State and not to the Church, so the 35 hours ago, the RTT, bridges and everything else and we can't visit it when you want to!

  • 被認為是火焰哥德式教堂的代表作之一,正面的尖頂拱門繁複的雕刻令人印象深刻,木門上文藝復興式的雕刻是十分出名的歷史瑰寶。
