In among Christmas activities you did see the ruins of the original church. The church is worth a visit. Surrounded by many restaurants and shops.

This place is among the oldest place in Europe. You can find the oldest hostel of France on this place which still have somehow the original design. You can still book a room in it, which offers amazing view on the place and the boat church. On this place, Jeanne d'Arc was burned, there is a huge cross on the... More

Visually and socially, Place du Vieux-Marche is a great urban space. It is strange there seems to be ruin outcroppings popping up out of the pavement that could cause a twisted ankle or worse. The space is, on one side, dominated by ultramodern shape of cold black slate roof and facade of Joan d.Arc church the side opposite is defined... More

Really enjoyed this bustling square, especially the excellent restaurants around it in the evenings. Very busy and very French atmosphere, particularly in the packed bars. Easy to take a stroll up to the cathedral and see it lit up at night to walk off the excesses!

This is what I consider the heart of the city, the architecture, the Church of St Joan of Arc, the market and the cafés. It's worth sitting there and see tourists and locals go by. There is a great place to eat sea food in the market, you should not miss it!

Just a great place to take in life in Rouen. Nice eateries, with reasonable prices. Near the Church of Joan of Arc. Good place to people watch. Loved this town...we will go back.

This is the centre of the old part of Rouen and a must see, especially when the market is open (not Sundays) and you can admire all the fantastic food on offer.

Our hotel was in an excellent location just off this square. We could just stroll out in the evening and immediately be surrounded by people and a huge choice of restaurants. Could sit here for hours watching the world go by. Loved the old buildings and the fact that the road led from here up past the Gros Horloge to... More

We arrived in the morning as the cafes were just setting up and it was great to see the square without people. We came back later in the day after a visit to the Cathedral and stopped for a coffee and snack in the square. At that time it was very lively and a great place to watch the world... More
