Rouen Travel Guide: 449 reviews and 1,124 photos

Rouen's medieval centre is filled with lofty spires and half-timbered houses. Located along the Seine River and home to numerous churches and impressive buildings, it is one of the oldest towns in Normandy, dating back to 50BC.

Rouen is the place where Joan of Arc was convicted and burnt at the stake in 1431.

It is an interesting place to spend a day or two soaking up the history and eating at some of the great restaurants on the lovely place du Vieux Marche.

    Excellent tips on Rouen, Sue. Sounds like it is well worth a stop on our next trip to France.

    Very enjoyable Sue, it took me back to our visit some years back. When we visited Notre Dame, a very mediocre rock band was performing outside - very loudly! Your page has confirmed that, one day, we must get back when that band isn't there.

    Great page. I love the old half-timbered houses from the 15th and 16th centuries (1400 and 1500s).

    Another top-5 page here (or will be soon). Very good write-ups as usual - and you missed out on the ice-cream twice !
