    The huge cathedral of Rouen is one of the largest and most important Gothic buildings in France. It was severely destroyed several times, especially in World War II. Noteworthy is the cast-iron crossing tower and that the sarcophagus with the heart of Richard the Lionheart.

    Claude Monet painted the facade of the cathedral in varying degrees of light. This series is one of the most important works of the impressionist painter.

    The pilgrimage of the tourists does not stop, all want to see the place on which
    History was written: On May 30, 1431 executioners dragged the straight
    Once 19-year-old Johanna von Orléans in front of a staggering crowd on the
    Pyre and inflamed him. Then they scattered the ashes of the
    Woman in the Seine. That's why every year there are commemorations in Rouen. Everything began
    At the beginning of the 15th century, the British held the Hundred Years War
    France north to the Loire occupied. The farmer's daughter Johanna from Lorraine
    wants to have been commissioned by higher powers at the age of thirteen against
    to fight the invaders. After a short glory but Jeanne intrigue fell to
    Victim. But not only because of the freedom fighter is the medieval
    City of Rouen on the list of historic sites in France throughout
    far above. Both the gothic cathedral and the astronomical clock are out
    the 14th century and the Palace of Justice from 1509, once the largest
    Non-ecclesiastical buildings in Europe attract tourists. In addition, the lures of carefully
    Restored half-timbered buildings lined historic Old Market.
    "The city of the hundred church towers whose bells ring skyward",
    described the French writer Victor Hugo Rouen.
