Immortalized by Claude Monet
Notre-Dame de Rouen Cathedral is the highest cathedral in France, with a spire culminating at 495 ft (151 m), and the third in the world after Ulm and Cologne. Its Gothic architecture dates back to the Early Middle Ages and retains the Archiepiscopal Palace and its annexes. Its lantern tower suffered a fire in 1822 that destroyed the spire rebuilt in cast iron. The current cathedral was built rather quickly between 1194 and 1230 on the ruins of a Romanesque church. It was immortalized by 28 paintings by Claude Monet, now scattered around the world.
