Nothing special

If you want, you can climb the tower and see a bit more of Roen. But if you don't do this you actually miss nothing.

This was the tower and dungeon where Joan of Arc was imprisoned and tortured. Although closed when we went it was worth the trek uphill to see it - there is a sign outside which explains the history.

This is the tower where Joan of Arc was held prior to he demise. With free entry, this is a must for families. Be warned there are numerous stairs to be climbed to the top. However there is a museum on the ground floor.

My husband was desperate to see in this tower but despite visiting three times when it should have been open it never was, so sadly we had to make do with viewing the exterior. Impressive machinations.

Went here after visiting Joan of Arc Museum but just missed the closing time which I think was 5pm. However the friendly guide was still around and let us in to quickly look around the ground floor and explain to us that this was the remaining Tower of Rouen Castle and Joan of Arc was held here. There is a... More

A day in Rouen finished up with a visit to this 700 year old tower. I thought it was atmospheric. Not much to see but well worth it if you have any energy left.

There isn't much to see but it's near the train station (Rive Droite) and it's free. It's the last vestige of a much larger castle that once stood here that was built by Kink Philip II. Joan of Arc was held here and tortured prior to her burning.

There's not a whole lot to see in the tower where Joan of Arc was held and supposedly tortured, but it's interesting, and obviously a must-do if you're tracing Joan's path. Walk all the way to the top floor of the tower on the narrow circular stone staircase to burn off your lunch calories and also take a look at... More

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.
