Place du Vieux-Marche, Rouen

4.3
Located in a city that traces its roots back to ancient Rome, Place du Vieux-Marche is most famous as the site where the English burned St. Joan of Arc at the stake. Today, it's hard to picture that gory scene in such a charming square, bordered by historical houses and cafes. As a reminder of the past, you can visit the square's large modern church, dedicated to St. Joan of Arc. Finished in 1979, it's built to represent an upturned Viking ship. The Vikings were among the groups that played an important part in settling the city.

  • Nice lively square in the center of Rouen lots of restaurants and bars surround this square tourist place overlooking many cobbled lanes where it is pleasant to walk many houses and half-timbered buildings, very typical of the region Norman place to visit again if you go to Rouen

  • Front of the houses of the 16th century and 18th rises a small but modern market covered in the 1970s, and the avant-garde Temple St. Joan of arc. Nice.
