This “old market square” is the location of Le Bucher, which makes it very historically significant. It is also home of what I consider an eyesore that does not fit the surrounding area and this is Eglise Sainte-Jeanne d’Arc. The square is very busy and...More

The tourist office has maps with excellent suggested historic walks around old Rouen. It’s all flat, it’s crammed with fabulous old buildings and you can break it up with coffee, cake, lunch, wine or whatever your “poison” is along the way. The Place du Vieux...More

The key attraction here is the number of restaurants which surround the central square. My wife and I had a difficult time understanding how the French, knowing their great history and culture, decided to erect such a dismal structure in the center.

Bustling area with big market hall, lots of restaurants and the famous church of St Joan of Arc, well worth a visit.
