Great place to explore and have lunch or coffee. The market has a great selection of fresh fish, fruit , veggies and cheese. Loads of shops for stocking up on presents for your return home. I loved the old buildings and in particular the shape of the market roof.

This is where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. There is the remains of the foundation of an old church and a sign in a garden memorializing the site when Joan died. There is also a modern church with 14-15th century stained glass windows and some excellent restaurants, especially the ones in the covered market.

Average isn't quite right, but neither is 'very good' - it's a busy place with a good buzz, which during the day feels comfortable. Nice to hang out and grab a beer or a coffee.

I think I need a neck adjustment - there are just so many wonderful things to see and explore in this area. The architecture is historically impressive but it is also vibrantly colourful. It is a credit to planning of the location. There are wonderful restaurant and fast food baguette shops everywhere and then the seafood market area where you... More

A lovely garden at the center of this large plaza has a sign showing where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. There's also a large cross marking the area, the ruined foundation of the old church and cafes surrounding the plaza.

This is a nice section of the city, with character, a solid Medieval feel, and several exhibits of Joan of Arc. There are some stone landmarks where sentencing and guillotine killings took place.

this place is very touristic. it looks as iff all tourists in town gather here because of the earlier torture of jeanne dárc. nowadays there are many restaurants where you can eat for a good price and quality.

The place where Jean d'Arc was burned. Now has a modern Cathedral and there are lots of restaurants and bars. Busy most of the year and a must see.
