Parked here in Mantes la Jolie to find coffee while en route to Charles de Gaulle airport, walked down the street and were blown away by the sudden sighting of this magnificent church. It soars above the rather mean streets below, and it stopped us...More

There isn't a lot to see in this small town but of course, there is a huge church. This church dates back to the eleven hundreds. It did sustain some damage during the French Revolution. The most prominent feature of this church is the stained...More

Quick side trip off the Paris-Rouen highway into this town to check out the 'Collegiale'. Scale is impressive and some intricate details. Worth a quick trip off the motorway. Not much else in the town though.

You cannot miss it ! From the A13 highway from Paris to Rouen (exit 11), you'll see two big towers looking like Paris Notre-Dame: here is the collegiale Notre-Dame, built during the XIIth century. Admiring the three beautiful carved doors from the XIIth to the...More
