Very nice street

Just walk it all the way. It's the most interesting street in town, hands down. Take a look at all the details in the facades.

The street is quaint and lovely with a different clock on either side on an arch that's approximately half way down the street. Many shops and lots of shoes.

Your first impression of this street is heart warming. It is everything a tourist street should be, filled with quaint French houses and cobblestones and myriads of shops and restaurants and the major attractions are within walking distance of each other - just gorgeous

Although this city is famous for Joan of Arc there is little remaining to mark her time here except for the vast cathedral & the Old Market square where she was executed.

Again a lovely old building, but not for the disabled or those with walking difficulties. It Stands at the side of the clock and is another piece of unspoilt Rouen

While the view of the 'Horloge' tower is quite famous, the big surprise is on the inside of the 'horloge' arch. Very fine masonry on a religious tableau.

A historical area with half timbered buildings and lots of street appeal. Little shops and cafes are sprinkled throughout this high Pedestrian area. The clock is memorable and highly photographed.

This is probably the most frequented section of the pedestrian street in the Old Town. Most visitors gathered on either sides of the Clock Tower for photo. Many of the old buildings nearby also have long history of its own which make this section of the avenue rather excited. Guided-tour groups stop by for their narrating of the history and... More
