King Henry IV of France is said to have declared this church to have been the most beautiful chapel in his kingdom. The fact that it does not have a transept may explain why the king referred to it as a chapel not a church....More

We spent a few hours in Caudebec in May 2014 while on a river cruise. During our time there, I walked around the village and saw most of the sites, many of which, however, were closed, including the church. The architecture of some of the...More

This is a fine example of the Flamboyant style of late Gothic architecture. Interestingly the cathedral and a couple of houses close to it were the only buildings to survive WW2 - virtually all else being destroyed by fire. The interior, particularly the stained glass,...More

This is the main church in the small town of Caudebec-en-Caux, in the Seine Valley, between Rouen and Le Havre. We visited the church and enjoyed an organ concert while our Vantage river cruise ship was docked in Caudebec-en-Caux. This church has some amazing stained-glass...More

Current church has sections from 14th to 16th century. Small chapel behind main altar has a unique suspended keystone with supporting arches that act as buttresses to keep it straight. Original stained glass that was removed for protection at outbreak of war then reinstalled

My wife and I were in our way from Honfleur to Abbaye de Jumieges. We knew we would not be able to enter the abbey until after their lunch break (2:30 pm) so we had some time to kill. On a whim, since this cathedral...More

This very large cathedral is from the 15th century. It is amazing that while very worn, everything is basically intact

This typical French town was more than 80% destroyed by Nazi incendiary bombs in 1940. The majority of its inhabitants were killed. It is well worth a walk through the town. Our river cruise ship moored at the quay for two nights. There is a...More

We, like another reviewer, stayed here for two days on board a river cruise ship. It is a fairly nondescript town, mainly due to having been rebuilt after it was bombed during the war in that soulless concrete style of so many towns in Northern...More

This town does not sound particularly special in any way, and Honfleur is a charming old port and Etretat a beautiful seaside spot often painted by the impressionists.
