This is the extraordinary place in Rouen you have to visit, when you are in this town. Walk trough and have a closer look at the gate

Rouen is a great place to wander round as there are interesting things to see everywhere. Quaint medieval streets and buildings and down one of the main shopping streets is this amazing huge clock which straddles the street at roof top level.If you can pop down and see it, I would...very impressive.

Great streets, wander, enjoy, sip some wines while watching people. The buildings are classic and incredibly interesting.

Quaint pedestrian-only street, I enjoyed strolling there for a while. If you've got some time, visit the Gros-Horloge itself. (Closed on Mondays)

A busy little walking "road" with lots of shops, eateries and people. Fascinating clock at one end and the Joan of Arc square at the other.

Rouen is a full exploration, so it is this road and this monument! It made me remember of prague or krakow for its style! Beutiful door, clock and road! :)

You can't miss this street if you are in Rouen....it is in town centre and the best shopping pedestrian thoroughfare. A good stroll.
