How do I get to the Notre-Dame de Mantes-la-Jolie Collegiate Church?
Address13 Rue Docteur Stéphane Bonneau
With its cathedral-like dimensions and its three portals considered masterpieces of Western sculpture, the collegiate church of Notre-Dame is one of the most important monuments in the Île-de-France region. Its 30-meter high nave was, at the time of its construction in the 12th century, the highest in the country, and its large rose window representing the Last Judgment was one of the oldest in France. This jewel of Gothic art also has two organs, one very recent, the second of inestimable value: built in 1897 by Joseph Merklin (1819-1905), a famous craftsman, it is one of the four symphonic organs of this period still in use in the world.
