We loved walking round this historical town and seeing the medieval houses. It was easy to visualise life several hundred years ago.

Most of the central part of the old city looks this way with half timber medieval construction. Very charming!

This is yet another great historical area of Rouen with many shops. Don't visit between 12.00 and 14.00 as they are all closed for lunch. Except of course the cafes so sit a while and enjoy a pleasurably lunch. Have a look afterwards at the many beautiful historical buildings.
