Rouen Cathedral is a Roman Catholic Gothic cathedral in Rouen, in northwestern France. Inside, the nave dates primarily from the 12th century and the aisles and vault from the 13th century. The nave is quite similar to Laon Cathedral, with a four-story elevation, restrained height, and busy architecture elements that focus attention downward, instead of to the heavens like later Gothic architecture.
It contains a tomb of Richard the Lionheart which contained his heart.
