Landmark
Named for the seventh-century archbishop of the city, Rue Saint-Romain runs near the city's cathedrals. The street is so picturesque that it's been captured the eye of many famous painters over the years, including Camille Pissarro , Eugène Boudin, and Charles Pinet. This street is alluring because it has changed so little since the Middle Ages. From the half-timber houses to the cobblestone-covered street still grooved from carriage wheels, you can feel the history here with each step.

  • This Street will take you directly from the Cathedral to the historial Joan of Arc. By the way, you will see some beautiful, well-preserved old houses and a few shops of Oresme earthenware. This production began in Rouen in the sixteenth century and advantageously continued until the 18th century thanks to the monopoly granted in 1644 by the Regent Anne of Austria to Nicolas Poirel who hired Edme Poterat, one of the creators of earthenware decorations the more prolix. Supplanted by the emergence of China, the competition of products from England and the changing tastes of the customer, the Rouen pottery definitely died in 1855. For lovers of earthenware pieces, this street is made for them. A word on the character who gave his name to this street: Saint-Romain, the protector of Rouen. Gallo-Roman born of an aristocratic family, he was chosen by a Merovingian King to be Bishop of Rouen in 1626. Chronicles one of the stained glass windows of the Cathedral the miracle of the Gargoyle to the Saint: he managed to capture a monster hiding in the marshes and brought her back, with the help of a prisoner he did release for the occasion, in Rouen, where the monster was burned alive. This episode was the "privilege of Holy Roman" which consisted for the Church each year to deliver a convict who was Holy Roman hunting at the end of a procession. A street necessarily to visit important monuments in Rouen, for lovers of faience, and for fans of history and miracle...

  • Is worth to wals along this sreet where you can appreciate the typical houses, at night has a lot of charming  more »
  • Dare to stroll down this street. Look up and understand that the biggest worries of the time was fire. All of these houses are corbelled, that is to say that each floor are close to the House opposite and increases the surface area of a unit in the complex. Spend and look at the masterpieces on display in the windows of merchants. Enjoy to buy a simple same memory of Rouen earthenware.

  • Surprisingly affordable given the location right next to the Cathedral, great food, friendly staff.
  • One of the reasons I go to Rouen is to eat at Le Saint Romain. The food, service and value are always, by my standards, of the best.
  • Decoration nice, correct pancakes no more! -August 2016 a Saturday for lunch, upon our arrival we are warned that there is a bit of a wait to be served. Quick installation in the main room at the back of the restaurant, nice decoration neat, taken the fairly quick order nevertheless. A little waiting, but in the end it wasn't so terrible thanks in particular to a service in the room fairly "nervous" to limit the damage. Correct dishes, but without large originalities for decoration... pancakes in the plate and that's all... a shame!
