Create an itinerary including Cathedrale Notre-Dame
One of Le Havre's oldest buildings, Cathedrale Notre-Dame stands among a few lucky structures to have survived the destruction of World War II, although it did sustain heavy damage. Originally built in the 16th century, the church underwent multiple rounds of remodeling and reconstruction in the following centuries. When you visit the centrally located cathedral, it's hard to miss the building's unusually low profile, which stems from its construction on marshy ground. The cathedral features a mix of architectural styles, including an ornate Baroque exterior facade combined with a late medieval-era bell tower. Be sure to enter the building to explore its vaulted halls and naves, a collection of crucifixes, and the remains of an organ from the 1600s.
