A famous part of Rouen history, classified as a Historic Monument in 1862, Aître Saint-Maclou is one of the few examples of this type of cemetery surviving in France. It is the second most visited monument in the city after the Cathedral, welcoming over 300,000 visitors per year.

The charming and peaceful Cour des Prêtres and the Géricault passageway are ideal for tours and strolls.
A real refuge within the city, Aître Saint-Maclou offers its visitors a timeless journey, whether as part of a tour or just a simple stroll around the site…
The Aître Saint-Maclou courtyard is open for self-guided tours every day* from 10am to 7pm.
