Eurfirst Trip to Rouen

Last edited May 27, 2008

Most tourists arrive in Rouen because it is the place where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. The starkly contemporary Eglise de Jeanne d'Arc in the center of town pays tribute to the French heroine who was found guilty of herasy as she fought to protect her king. Nearby a small memorial commemorates the spot of her execution.

Rouen's story goes much deeper than the tale of the girl soldier. Its majestic cathedral inspired Monet to create a series of paintings in 1894. Though the structure was damaged during World War II, the delicate facade has been carefully restored. Inside you will find the buried heart of the English Crusader, Richard the Lion Heart
