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.

This tower has a lot of history. To think that Jean D'arc was tortured for months in this tour ... If you like history thesis your place. Unfortunately the tour wasn't opened to the public when I went so I didn't get to see the inside but the outside it humbling enough .

Only 1.50 EUR entry (and free for students / under 18s). There isn't a great deal to see inside, but they have got some paintings and information about the tower and Joan of Arc. The top floor has been filled with concrete (to use it as a bunker in WW2) so you can't see out across the town, which is... More

... but there was not a lot to see, just 'been there, done that' sort of place - use the train, parking in Rouen is very difficult!

Memories of Rapunzel! Some good displays reached by a series of spiral stairs encased in very thick walls. Nothing special but worth half an hour.

All that remains of the castle where Jeanne d'Arc was held prisoner. It was interesting and worth a visit.

The tower is impressive even though it is a copy, Joan of Arc didn't actually stay in this one. If you're planning on going here bear in mind that it is 122 steps to the top floor of the tower. If you're in a wheelchair forget it and if you're not very fit or past your prime years this is... More

This is the place in which Jehanne d'Arc was threatened with torture. It is all that remains of the castle in which she was imprisoned at Rouen. It is a very significant piece of the history of Jehanne d'Arc and it is well-kept.

We didn't have a lot of time here as it was due to close in 45 mins, but we did see all of it at a brisk pace. The guide on the desk spoke excellent English and was very informative, he told us about the remains of another part of the original castle in the next street where the offices... More

My husband and I visited the Tour Jeanne d'Arc in Rouen as part of our honeymoon in June 2011. We took the SNCF train from Paris, and I believe the trip was just over an hour. The tower, just south of the train station, was easily accessible by foot. We paid a nominal fee to enter the self-guided tour through... More
