The Parliament of Normandy (parlement de Normandie), also known as the Parliament of Rouen (parlement de Rouen) after the place where it sat (the provincial capital of Normandy), was a provincial parlement of the Kingdom of France. It replaced the ancient court of the exchequer of Normandy, set up by Rollo, first duke of Normandy.


The parlement was built in a mixing of the French Flamboyant style and Renaissance architecture by Roger Ango and Roulland le Roux, between 1499 and 1508, during the reign of the king Louis XII of France. Today, the building is the seat of the courthouse of the city of Rouen.

  • Viewing from outside only,well worth viewing,great nostalgic building,badly damaged in WW2, Put back together again!  more »
  • Extremely dominant, and lovely, building smack in the middle of vieux Rouen. You can't miss it if your'e walking from old square to the cathedral (or vice versa). It's a splendid renaisannce building....  more »

  • 4 Stars only because there is no access to courtyard. Nice building.
  • The 16th century building, heavily destroyed during the 2ST and carefully restored after, is one of the few surviving examples of French Gothic architecture of the late Middle Ages.
