Rouen Cathedral

France

Rouen Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church in Rouen, Normandy, France. It is the see of the Archbishop of Rouen, Primate of Normandy. It is famous for its three towers, each in a different style. The cathedral, built and rebuilt over a period of more than eight hundred years, has features from Early Gothic to late Flamboyant and Renaissance architecture. It also has a place in art history as the subject of a series of impressionist paintings by Claude Monet. There are some highly distinguished burials at this breathtaking building: namely Richard the Lionheart, and the early Norman rulers like Rollo and William I. Many of the stained glass windows made in the 1200s survive, and there are some gorgeous ones to see in the south transept that date from the 1500s
