Notre Dame Cathedral

See beautiful statues and stained-glass windows and learn about the rich history of this stunning Roman Catholic cathedral in Arras.

Notre Dame Cathedral in Arras is a magnificent house of worship and a fine example of classical architecture. Explore the majestic interior and view many religious artworks, such as the Gallery of Saints, and the impressive stained-glass windows. Enjoy the cathedral at its best by attending a service and hear the grand organ accompanying the choir. 

Arras Cathedral, also known as Cathedral de Notre Dame et St. Vaast, was built between 1030 and 1396. It was destroyed during the French Revolution then rebuilt from 1778 in a classical style, designed by architects Jean Francoise Labbe and Pierre Contant d’Ivry. It was restored again after suffering severe damage during World War II. Take a tour of this magnificent site, which is considered one of the most beautiful cathedrals in northern France.

Stand at the foot of the wide stone steps outside the building and admire its impressive exterior. The  façade is notable for its simplicity, with symmetrical Corinthian columns. Step inside and you will notice the choir is separated into four bays, each with beautiful stained-glass windows. The windows depict saints and bishops who have played an important part in the religious history of the region. 

At the Gallery of Saints, marvel at the eight marble statues, each one representing a different saint. The statues were made by master craftsmen in the 19th century. Continue through the church and you will see the great organ, completed in 1962 by Roethinger House in Strasbourg. It is still used to accompany choirs during services today. 

Visit during summer to view one of the annual exhibitions. These are focused around themes such as the rebuilding of the cathedral or important Catholic objects of worship. 

Notre Dame Cathedral is free to enter. It’s closed on Mondays and has different opening times throughout the year for the other days of the week. Check the official Arras Office of Tourism website for details.
