Rouen is the historic capital city of Normandy, in northern France on the River Seine, and currently the capital of the Haute-Normandie region. Once one of the largest and most prosperous cities of medieval Europe. Rouen was the seat of the Exchequer of Normandy in the Middle Ages.
The city centre is compact and all sights can easily be seen by foot.
Rouen Cathedral (la cathédrale de Rouen) - the facade of the cathedral was famously painted by Claude Monet at various times during one day - like his Haystacks series of paintings - capturing the subject in a variety of lights. In the summer after dark Rouen puts on a light show projecting some of Monet's cathedral paintings onto the facade of the cathedral itself, each showing lasts approximately 10 minutes and runs until about midnight.
Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in the center of la vieille ville. A simple field of wildflowers marks the spot of her martyrdom. Next to it is the modern Eglise de Jeanne d'Arc.
The Big Clock (le gros horloge) has been recently restored and is located in the middle of the rue du gros horloge. Climb to the top for a beautiful view of the city.
