Coming up on my blog, a little tour of the historic city centre of Rouen, and just a taste of what this magnificent city has to offer. We’ll look at architecture: the wonderful half-timbered buildings from the medieval period, take a tour of the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Rouen, the incredible church that inspired Monet to create a series of paintings, and visit the Church of St. Joan of Arc and the market square where the saint was martyred in 1431.
