Rouen and various communes in the Seine Valley feature a great wealth of architectural heritage. Many exceptional monuments decorate the towns, squares and streets of the capital of Normandy.
Located in the town centre, a stone’s throw from the SNCF railway station, in the historic centre or on the outskirts of the town, the Archive Tower, Joan of Arc’s stake, the Aître Saint-Maclou (cemetery for plague victims), the Finance Office, the Courthouse, Joan of Arc’s dungeon or tower and the Jewish Monument can all be discovered.
With buildings from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance or more recent times, discover the key parts of our heritage: the Parliament of Normandy and its magnificent gargoyles, the Gros-Horloge clock, home to one of the oldest mechanisms in Europe, one of the last eight permanent circuses in France: the Cirque-Théâtre in Elbeuf.
A large number of monuments are free to visit, you can also choose to have guided tours or audio tours. These monuments are great excursion ideas for your weekend getaways, your family holidays or your business trips.
