This is not "THE" place Joan of Arc was imprisoned, it's just the last remaining part of the larger castle. Once you climb the many stairs to the top you are not rewarded with a view of the city, as with most climbs. Not really much to it. If you've never climbed a tower in Europe, by all means, it's...

I missed out on actually going in but to see the site is a must do if in the area, hopefully next time i will be able to go in. This is the last remaining piece of Rouen's castle (1204). This is where Joan of Arc was held prior to her execution. The architecture from the outside is impressive.

Interesting, kind of, but really not what it could be…. The climb to the top is fun, but the total lack of anything interesting to see up there makes it a bit pointless.

This is the last remaining piece of Rouen's castle (1204). This is where Joan of Arc was held prior to her execution. There are a number of displays here about old Rouen and about Joan.

My title refers to a marker outside this tower. Beauvreuil Castle, also known as Rouen Castle (built in the early 13th century), was important in the Middle Ages, but now all that is left is this rather unpleasant looking tower, an apparently rare example of a round keep. It is a very short walk from the Rouen rail station and... More

This is a small tower where Joan of Arc was held before being burned at the stake. The spiral staircase is narrow and the rooms on the three levels are rather large. Each room is filled with various displays depicting the city, such as Joan’s time in the tower and a few other historical references to Joan of Arc. You... More

This has to be one of the best value attractions in town, still only 1.5€ and so few visiting when we attended. The graffiti is almost as interesting as some of the exhibits, but the Mark Twain connection was the real surprise.

The entrance to this museum is very inexpensive, and that is a good thing since it is nothing too special. It was worth the 20 minutes we spent there. It was interesting to learn about the history of the tower, there is very little that is original, most is a reproduction. It is closed (as are most museums) from noon... More

The Tower's a nice place to learn more about Rouen's history, and the history of Joan of Arc who was murdered in the Vieux Marche. The museum is very cheap to get into, I believe it was 1.50 euro. Also, the view from the second floor is amazing.
