GROS HORLOGE, Rouen: 10 reviews and 10 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: The underneath of the vault of the Gros Horloge is entirely carved. On the other side, a large medallion shows a herd of oxen in a landscape with Mediterranean looking trees (Pinus maritima, Parasol pine). The carving reads : Pastor bovis.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
