Rouen, a rich cultural heritage

The most important monument in the city is the Notre-Dame de Rouen Cathedral. Some of the stones used to build the cathedral date back to the Middle Ages. The cathedral is characterised by its detailed Gothic architecture. It is world-famous and considered the “most human cathedral” because of its asymmetry. Work on the cathedral began in 1035, but was not completed until 1506. Both inside and out, the cathedral is magnificent with its colourful stained glass windows and intricate carvings.

You can visit the cathedral from 9am to 7pm on weekdays, from 2pm to 7pm on Mondays, and from 8am to 6pm on Sundays. But you will see it first from your window in your private jet to Rouen.
