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 Each room is filled with various displays depicting the city, such as Joan’s time in the tower and a few other historical references to Joan of Arc.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.

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!
