The tour has stood there for time. The guide is friendly and there is an English flyer to review the history of the tower. You can climb up the tower but there is no view. The main appreciation is that the history of Joan of Arc.

After visiting Jeanne d'Arc square earlier we walked up to the tower. Even though it was closed there was a real atmosphere about the tower. Poignant that this tower existed 700 years ago and was Joan of Arc's prison.

If you are a fan of things related to Joan of Arc (maybe you've seen the extraordinary Dreyer film with its great Einhorn musical score), you will be in your element in Rouen. As you start planning what Joan-related activities to do while in the city, you might wonder whether visiting this tower should be at the top of your... More

It is a tower with a sign that explains that it is the remains of a large castle. I enjoyed reading the history. I visited it as a part of a self guided tour.

First of all it was free to get in and they have English flyers at the front area that explain what happened on each floor. There are displays and a good amount of history on Joan of Arc and her short life. There are 3 floors with steep stone stairs between each floor and a small exhibit area on each... More

This is worth a visit as part of the Joan of Arc tour but there really isn't much to see here. Having climbed to the top, hoping for a good view of the city, everything was blocked off so no one could get near the Windows to look out. There was some information to read, but mostly in French. However,... More

The tower is part of Rouen Castle's remains. It states that there has been imprisoned Jeanne d'Arc. Although I have heard that it is not true and she was not imprisoned here but in another, the now-lost tower, which was next to Tour Jeanne d'Arc. Despite this it was interesting to see the exhibition and climb the narrow stairs to... More

The building is were Joan of Arc were held and tortued so it's amazing that it's still standing. You climb very narrow stairs and on every floor there are information about her but not everything was translated to English. We walked all the way up but there was nothing there to look at! Historical value of course but not much... More

Although relatively small, this tower is full of history. There is plenty of information throughout, to keep visitors occupied and the climb to the top was worth it for the view over the city.

Well worth a visit to learn more about Joan of Arc, to get a feel for her last days and time of imprisonment. Lots of art and information within. Can climb the narrow steep tower to different levels with more information.
