AITRE SAINT-MACLOU

Category : MONUMENTS

Localisation :  Rouen Centre


From the Latin "atrium", or central courtyard of a house, which designated a cemetery in the Middle Ages, this exceptional ensemble is one of the last medieval necropolises in Europe tobe found in a city centre. Its origins dateback to the Great Plague of 1348 which killed three quarters of the neighbourhood's inhabitants; the buildings, constructed in the main at the beginning of the 16th century, are decorated with motifs that evoke death. They currently house the Regional School of Fine Arts.
