After driving for about an hour and half from Caen we arrived in Rouen. We ducked into a patisserie (La Chocolatiere) to get inside out of the rain. We enjoyed an espresso and 2 small, dense pastries
The inside was all stained glass and sharp angles. It was a striking bit of architecture.
Rouen is synonymous with Joan of Arc. We stood at the spot where Joan was burned at the stake.
Joan of Arc Museum. We walked past a number of scenes including the pivotal moment where Joan was burned by the English.
Gros-Horloge, a 16th century astronomical clock.
