A city that makes an impression

About France

Rouen presents a wonderful heritage symbolysed by Notre-Dame’s cathedral. Its spire is more than 150 m high, making it the highest of France! Leaving the cathedral, follow the Gros-Horloge street which is the main shopping place of Rouen.

You will discover in this street bordered by many half-timbered houses the majestic Gros-Horloge ; the astronomic clock present on this stony arch was built during the 14th century. Go on until the Old Market square ; this is the place where Jeanne d’Arc was burnt in 1431. The exact location of the stake is still visible via a large cross...

Remember that visiting these amazing monuments is only a tiny part of what you can do in Rouen...
