One day in the company of an expert guide discovering the beautiful Rouen
Set in the Normandy region and crossed by the River Seine, Rouen is a true museum-town with its beautiful Normandy style houses, cobblestone streets and its Gothic churches. The city was the theater of the martyrdom of Joan of Arc, condemned and burned alive in 1431, in the Old Market Square.
Over the centuries, sacred art flourished in Rouen, as its name denies, "la Ville aux 100 clochers", in English, "The city of 100 bells", an expression used to designate the number of churches present in this city.
This guided tour in the historic center of Rouen includes the most striking monuments in its urban landscape like the Great Clock Street, narrow and very picturesque; the majestic Notre-Dame Cathedral, which inspired the master Claude Monet, Saint-Maclou and Saint-Ouen churches; and, the modern Church of St. Joan of Arc.
You will get to know the incredible story of Joan of Arc by visiting the Joan of Arc Tower, the medieval castle where the heroin process developed and the Market Square, where she was burned alive.
The city is beautiful, has a picturesque charm with its narrow medieval streets. I am sure that you will be delighted with Rouen!
