Wonderul opportunity for "shutter-bugs"

The Place du Vieux-Marche is picture perfect and a beehive of activity. It includes restaurants, shops, the Church of Joan of Arc, and a archaeological excavation.

This place is just full of history! Joanna D'arc was burned here! And besides that, in here you will find plenty of options to eat!

This is the square where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. Today the site is marked for all to see. For that historical monument, it is worth a visit. However, it is also worth a visit for the beautiful square that it is today. Must see.

We came here of a warm sunny day, and spent ages wondering around enjoying the many interesting buildings to see here. Well worth a visit.

I remember that place from many many years ago i use to work around the corner, and it did not look that way. The place was full of stalls were you could by food. The government did a great job at restoring the place.

Plenty to see & do in Rouen, the old market square has loads of restaurants and of course the place where Joan of Arc was martyred in 1431. A modern church now stands adjacent to the execution site and well worth a visit. Rouen was well worth our two nights stay on route back home after staying in the Loire.

This is a great people watching place . Nice food markets. We stopped by and the cheese proprietor was super helpful and told us about the local cheeses. Just wish I wasn't leaving tomorrow or I would have bought some.

During our brief stay in Rouen we ate out five times and all were in this square. The modern church is well worth visit. We are not religious but the building is certainly worth looking at from an architectural point of view. The whole place is full of very old buildings. From here it's only a short walk to the...
