“An attractive market square”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The Place du Vieux-Marche, literally the ancient market square, is a picturesque old marketplace in the old town of Rouen. To the southern side are various café bars and restaurants, and also a couple of museums, with attractively coloured half-timbered buildings dominating that side of the square.

To the east is the Rue de Grande Horloge, while the northern side of the square is dominated by the spectacular modern Church of Joan of Arc, constructed on the site where she was burned for heresy, and reviewed by me on a separate page.

“Worth Visiting”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

In the center of Place du Vieux Marche is a beautiful modern church of Saint Joan of Arc. This is a wonderful church with stunning stained glass windows. And next to the church is the site were Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. There is a statue of her and memorial to her. Surrounding this area are old timber buildings, which this city is famous for.

“Historical”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

I stumbled into this town by accident but it was the greatest thing ever. The timber house on top of modern shops were amazing to look at. This area looked like a great place to chill and get drinks in the near by pubs. There was also a old school looking carrousal that looked neat.
