Walked down this bit and drank in the sights. Rouen is a mix of modern and old almost Tudor like architecture. The clock is a great sight and leads to the old market square.

Antique clock archway on one of the main streets in old town Rouen, beautiful back drop. There is a bar right beneath it to stop and admire it while sipping a coffee or glass of wine.

I found this a beautiful street to walk down, with many architectural details on each of the buildings. The street leading to the clock on one side is rather utilitarian, businesses and such. But on the other side of the amazing clock on the archway/bridge...More
