About Vernon

Vernon is situated within the area of Eure in the Haute-Normandie region of northern France. The village lies amongst picturesque scenery on the banks of the River Seine, between the cities of Paris and Rouen. This French commune is a quaint and serene town which offers a range of historic architecture and fascinating buildings to explore. The region also boasts a particularly peaceful atmosphere alongside the tranquil scenery which can be enjoyed throughout the town. The commune is also home to an excellent selection of shops, markets and restaurants as well as great cultural experiences at the local museums and art galleries. The famous French painter Claude Monet lived in the nearby village of Giverny and painted several exquisites landscapes paintings of some Vernon’s historic buildings, monuments and natural scenery. Indeed, it is easy to see why Vernon has inspired artists with its omnipresent charm and unique character.

Exploring Vernon

The town of Vernon contains a range of historic structures with fantastic architecture and design but the region’s most iconic building is the Collegiate Church of Notre Dame, which dates back as far as the 11th century. The church is famous locally for its intricate Gothic style design and impressive pipe organs and engravings, which were completed over hundreds of years.

Another of Vernon’s significant historical landmarks is the Tourelles Castle, built by Philippe Auguste during the Middle Ages. The fortress boasts four large towers, one of which was damaged by bombs during the air raids of the Second World War and is currently being restored.

Vernon’s city hall is also a magnificent example of French architecture, constructed at the end of the 19th century opposite to the Collegiate Church. Other notable buildings found within Vernon are the House of Old Times, which is the area’s oldest residential dwelling, the Archive Tower which was once part of an ancient castle and the Old Mill, located by the River Seine.

Fabulous cultural experiences are also available in Vernon, from art galleries and museums to walking and cycling trails. Not surprising considering the area's artistic pedegree, there is a good selection of renowned local art galleries and museums, including the Alphonse-Georges Poulain Museum, the Galerie du Démocrate and the Galerie Tuffier, all of which contain fascinating exhibits and works of art.
