Discover Rouen with a Local
The historic capital of Normandy was the scene of the martyrdom of Joan of Arc, convicted and then burnt at the stake in 1431 on the Old Market Place. Rouen is also known as the “Town with a Hundred Spires” thanks to jewels of religious architecture.
Visit the Old Town
The Notre-Dame Cathedral: Remarkable for the juxtaposition of all periods of gothic, it is also known for having inspired work of Claude Monet on the world famous series of cathedral.
Big Clock Tower: One of the most remarkable sites in Rouen. The gothic belfry houses since its construction at the ed of the 14th century, the communal bells and clock of the town. It also has a Renaissance pavilion .
Joan of Arc Church: With its 16th century stained glass windows, it was completed in 1979 in a very modern style on the Old Market Place where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake.
Church Saint-Maclou: A gem of flamboyant gothic art, it is one of the icon church in Rouen and is really a must-see.
Aître Saint-Maclou: Old parish cemetery created during the Black Plague in 1348. It is now occupied by the School of Fine Arts. It remains one of the rare example of a medieval mass grave cemetery in Europe.
Abbey Church Saint-Ouen: Dating back to the 14th and 16th century, it houses organs and choir screens (18th) and fine stained glass windows.
Palace of Justice: Another masterpiece of the flamboyant Gothic style. Since WWII, the building has been restored to its ultimate glory (save a few bullet holes and scars of shell damage on the facade facing on Joan of Arc Street).
