A tower.

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.

Well worth the visit to feel the history that seeps out of the 4 metre thick stone walls. Imagine what Joan felt when she was held there before her death, held in the dungeon, trialed and threatened with the horrid implements of torture. Entry is currently free. Staff are happy to help and inform you. Guide sheet is available in... More

Well, it is bit far from city center. (As you know Rouen is not a big city so... not tooo far actually). in my opinion , it is not wealthy to go to find it. not that special.
