Travel Tips for Rouen

Église Saint Maclou, the north portal, right

by JLBG

On the righy, the top medallion the North portal of the église Saint Maclou seems to represent two persons laying on a bed, under a canopy, while several persons are around. I have not found any explanation for this scene. I keep searching.

Strolling around Place du Vieux Marché

by JLBG

Strolling around Place du Vieux Marché will allow you to admire many of these "maisons à colombage" (half-timbered houses). For centuries, that was in most parts of France the way of building houses as well in cities as in the country. Rouen is probably the city where there remain the most numerous.

Aître Saint-Maclou, showing what ?

by JLBG

If you were to show out your job, you would certainly first think to show the tools you are using. The butcher shows his knife, the tailor his needle, the restaurant its forks, the wore … nothing (please don't consider, not a good example), then, what would the gravediggers might show !

The oldest !

by JLBG about La Couronne (1)

We have not been to "la Couronne", though it is considered as a very good restaurant because they had few customers while neighbor "Les Maraîchers" was nearly booked out. Usually, that has a meaning...

Cathedrale Notre Dame

by sue_stone

Rouen's Cathedrale Notre Dame is located in the heart of the city. It is located on Place de la Cathedrale (not surprisingly!) and it's spire can be seen from around the city.

The Cathedral's construction began in 1301 and was not completed until 1514. It is therefore a living record of how French Gothic architecture evolved over the years. It was a favourite of artist Claude Monet who chose it as a subject for more than 30 paintings.

The front of the Cathedral is unusual as the two towers are very different - the tower on the left being built in early-Gothic style, and the one on the right in Flamboyant Gothic style. Its cast iron spire, soaring up from the middle of the Cathedral, is 151 metres high and one of the tallest in France. The Cathedral was actually the tallest building in the world from 1876 to 1880!

The 135m long interior has an air of calm. It is pretty impressive, with its aisles containing stained-glass windows ranging from the 13th-16th centuries. Hanging from the roof in the middle of the cathedral is a tattered French flag which looks like it was damaged during the war.

Contained within the Cathedral's treasury is the heart of Richard the Lionheart. He loved the city of Rouen, and ordered that his heart be buried in the Cathedral when he died.

The Cathedral is open daily from 8am-6pm. Free admission.
