St. Maclou's Church, Rouen
(4.5/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • We have lived in Rouen 4 days and all this time the Church was closed! once caught on the steps of the nun, moved inside, were sent. Nevertheless, the Church, the Gothic beauty thread such that it seems that this lace. Before entering the temple very cozy square, one of the most beautiful in Rouen due to surrounding its timber-framed buildings.
