Making History In The Heart Of Normandy
With a history dating back to the 8th century, Rouen’s monuments boast a who’s who of Normandy’s past. Visit the gothic Notre-Dame Cathedral, painted by Claude Monet more than thirty times, then view the art itself at the musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen. In the town square, the church of Saint Joan of the Arc now stands at the site of the heroine’s pyre. Pass the time underneath the Great Clock or take in city views from the Gothic belfry above.
