Book your journey in RouenFrance
A city that makes an impression
Rouen, rich in history and in remains!
Rouen is an important city of the northwestern part of France. The Seine river goes through it before flowing into the English Channel. Rouen has been the witness of long periods since the Antiquity, and it can still be admired in Rouen’s architecture.
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...
