Church of St. Maclu – one of the churches of Rouen, built in the style of the flaming Gothic. It differs from similar ones by a multi-tiered portal with a pointed top and covered galleries, the doors of which are decorated with decorative panels of the 16th century. The church, built in 1200 and reconstructed in 1432, was consecrated only in 1521. In the 19th century, the Lantern Tower was added to the church complex. Inside the cathedral there are photographs dating from June 1944 that tell the story of the destruction and subsequent reconstruction of the church.
The cathedral is magnificent both inside and out. It is not for nothing that the founder of Impressionism, Claude Monet, turned to this building many times, reproducing it on his canvases.
