best day of week to visit

by mishgrl

Hello:

We are planning to make a day trip to Rouen from Paris and wanted to know if Tuesday is a good day. Are most shops open? What about any fun outdoor market places? If Tues. it not good, then what day is? What about Sunday? Are shops open? We will be coming in early March. Thank you.

How are you getting there? If you are driving, Sunday would have the least traffic and easiest parking. Otherwise it won't make much difference.

There is a market Tuesday through Sunday morning at the Place du Vieux-Marché and another Tues., Fri. Sat. and Sunday at Place St. Marc. You may want to check things you want to visit and make sure they are open on the day you plan to visit. Many museums close on either a Monday or a Tuesday.

Shops will be open all week except possibly Sunday. Many are closed Sunday and some all day Sunday and Monday morning.

Unless you want to attend Mass, visiting the church will be easier on any day except Sunday. Don't miss Notre Dame Cathedral but also visit St. Ouen and surrounding gardens. Both churches are stunning. There is a cute little tourist train you can take to get a good overview of the city and then walk where you like.

The following web site might be useful. http://www.rouentourisme.com/musees-monuments.html

Here is a list of all the markets but it's only in French. http://www.rouentourisme.com/Default.aspx?level=2&tabid=1127&cat=75&language=fr-FR&title=Marchés_-_Rouen__|_Infos_pratiques_-_Normandie

It's a beautiful city. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you so much. Can you tell me what type of markets are the 2 you mention. Thank you. BTW we will be coming via train.

The market at Place du Vieux-Marché is listed as fruits, vegetables and flowers and a second listing is foods. You will probably find anything that can be eaten, and the flowers will be lovely. They usually offer free tastes of things they are selling. That's how we become addicted to various cheeses. LOL

The St. Marc market is simply listed as diverse which can mean anything. You can expect all kinds of fruits, vegetables, cheeses, sausages, breads and probably meats, spices and desserts. Some of the diverse markets we've gone to have shoes, clothes, furniture, various supplies for gardening, household items, flea market-type things. I don't know if this market will be that diverse. Certainly it will have most food items, flowers and possibly scarves and clothing.

Whether you attend the market at the Vieux-Marché or not, don't miss the Old Market Square. There is a huge cross where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake and there is also a very modern church honoring her. Go inside the church and look at the windows. They are beautiful old stained glass saved from a church that was destroyed in the war. The juxtaposition of the modern inside and the marvelous old stained glass windows is amazing. If you look closely at the windows, there are stained glass scenes of Old Rouen as backgrounds to the religious themes. It's fascinating.

BTW, if you are taking the train, it won't matter which day you go because you won't have to worry about parking and traffic. Tuesday through Saturday are usually the best days to find things open and busy.

Have a great trip.

Travel Tips for Rouen

Our Problems with the Cathedral Stained Glass

by hquittner

The stained glass of Rouen's Cathedral ranges from the 13C (Chartres School Type) to the 20 C (Max Ingrand). Theold glass was preserved during the war and added to with more from destroyed churches. We found it very difficult to take pictures of stained glass windows. The undependable light and multitude of colors and details are hard to focus in a small viewer and the distance to the windows may be great (and we do not carry a tripod). For me it is just luck. Then there are the bewildering stories even if it is the Passion of Jesus which is well-known. Which panels to choose and what do they show? Where did we put our notes about the window locations?. This is abundantly clear at the Cathedral Notre Dame. We have selected 5 “successes” to illustrate the centuries on view. (There are about 5 better illustrations by others scattered among the 500 Rouen pictures, if you want to try to find them).

Église Saint Maclou, the nave

by JLBG

The nave of the Église Saint Maclou is elegant with very thin columns that belong to the Gothique flamboyant style as it was built between 1437 and 1517. It had been badly hit by collateral damages bombings in 1944.

The oldest restaurant in France

La Couronne, on the Place du Vieux Marché, claims to be the oldest Restaurant in France (may be in the world) that has been continuously open since it first opening in 1431 till now !

Aître Saint-Maclou : what are you working upon ?

by JLBG

But would you feel that showing the tools you are using will be enough to represent your job ? I bet no, and that you will certainly be tempted to show on what you are working. Hu, hu "on what you are working" !!?? Actually, why not… The only thing is that you have to fit it with wood carving capabilities and to the space remaining free for carving !
