"Le Gros Horloge from the Cathedral" Top 5 Page for this destination GROS HORLOGE Tip by JLBG

GROS HORLOGE, Rouen: 10 reviews and 10 photos


Favorite thing: Walking away from the main entrance in the Cathedral, you will find yourself in front of what the locals call "LE Gros Horloge" (male). Note that in French, that should be "LA Grosse Horloge" (female). But in Rouen, may be due to pollution by pesticides, the clock has been subjected to a change of gender !

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
