The Church of Saint Joan of Arc

With modern minimalist features, this dramatic church stands proudly on Place du Vieux-Marche in Rouen. This is the place where Saint Joan of Arc was burned at the stake, which is what the church's shape symbolises.

Do & See

French food will keep your stomach full and the beautiful scenery will please beyond any doubt, but you will also have your hands full when it comes to activities in and around Rouen. The area is not only full of historical sites, but also very popular for outdoor activities like hiking, cycling and other sports. The Notre Dame Cathedral is a must-see, not to be confused with its namesake cathedral in Paris. This was the cathedral that inspired Monet to paint his cathedral series. Wandering the streets of Rouen you will also come across The Gros Horloge, a beautiful clock right above a pedestrian street and one of its most recognisable sights.
