Caudebec, France Cruise Port

The few original structures still standing in the cruise port of Caudebec, France offer a rich architectural backdrop in this quaint gothic medieval town located north of France between Rouen and Le Havre. Built at the mouth of the Saint-Gertrude valley, this river port has a small town charm and feel, perfect for a simple cruise escape. Everything seems easily accessible from the cruise port and boarding a motorcoach into the countryside to see half-timbered houses with thatched roofs could be a rewarding experience. Although much of the cruise port of Caudebec was destroyed by fire during World War II, a few features and landscapes remain recognizable from postcards dating back to 1945.
 
With plenty to explore while cruising to Caudebec, France, these places of attraction are only a highlight of the amazing sights to encounter:
 
  • Make it a point to stroll along the river banks to see the beautiful gardens and houses that line the waterway, or head into the historical center of the town for highlights of the gothic style architecture dating back to the 15th century. One of these buildings is the flamboyant gothic Church of Our Lady (Église Notre-Dame). Built in the 15th and 16th centuries by King Henry IV of France, this grandeur structure is an attractively ornate church with beautiful stained-glass windows, 333 sculptured human figures and a finely decorated west portal.
     
  • Stop by the House of the Templars (Maison des Templiers) to see the different tools and artifacts used by the Knights Templars and preserved in memory of their contribution to protecting pilgrims on their way to visit Holy Places.
