Evreux tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Evreux is a pleasant cathedral town and an ideal stopover for Chateau Gaillard at Les Andelys and Monet's gardens at Giverny. 

At the centre of the town lies the Cathedrale Notre-Dame with some delightful 14th-15th century stained-glass.  It combines Gothic design with Romanesque arches in the nave and Renaissance screens in the chapel.  In fact, there are many religious buildings of note in and around Evreux such as the Eglise Saint Taurin which was built by Richard the Lionheart.

Evreux has always made good use of the pretty canals of the river Iton.  In the XIX century numerous public wash houses were set up along its banks only to fall into disuse with the arrival of the washing machine.  However, some can still be seen today from the Pont-de-Fer and Docteur-Guindey bridges.
