An old market place in the center of Rouen. This is nothing special for Europe. It's pleasant and OK.

When the market is open it's well worth the wandering around ... but the Place du Vieux-Marche is important mainly for being the site of Jeanne d'Arc's burning at the stake and the perfectly marvelous church that has been built there in her honor and memory. One of the very few modern churches I've seen that is truly beautiful, truly... More

This is an attractive square in western Rouen. As a earlier reviewer noted, the church does subtract from it aesthetically but it's still pleasant enough. There are a couple of shops selling postcards, posters, books etc about Rouen and Normandy. Also check out the local eateries and bars that line the place.

Neat small square surrounded by dining places. So good for an afternoon drink or dining as needed. St. Joan of Arc church dominates the square.

Would be a nice old square but for the church - see separate entry. Lots of old buildings including the - allegedly - oldest inn in France. What, the whole of France? So it claims.

This could be so much better, but the French will never run out the druggies, drunks and degenerates that camp permanently in the archeological ruins at the center of this 1000 year old marketplace...it's worthwhile to visit to see the square and the buildings surrounding, along with the exact place of Joan of Arc's demise...but don't plan to linger, those...

I went here hoping to find a good farmer's market and was disappointed. Cheap old clothes and trinkets and very limited selection of produce etc. If you are looking for a wonderful farmer's market, head to St. Pierre sur Dives on Monday mornings.

Nothing different from others places. The city is nice in a global way and not to see particular places. Nice building

Beautiful spot in Rouen. Sit at a café or picnic on a seat outside of the Jeanne d'Arc church and just watch the people go by. Lovely spot in Rouen.
