History and urbanism
Founded in the 1st century under Augustus, Rouen became the capital of Normandy under the Vikings in 841. Its closeness to the sea enabled it to enjoy great trading success. In the Renaissance, the city was gripped by an enthusiasm for building: this was when major edifices such as the Hôtel de Bourgtheroulde and the Gros Horloge were constructed. The industrial revolution led to the construction of workers districts. When it was liberated in 1944, Rouen was in ruins. The decision was made to rebuild the city from the old plans.
You can’t take in the whole of the “City of a hundred bell-towers” in one go, but you can see a good sample… Visit the monks’ dormitory at Saint-Ouen Monastery. Rue Beauvoisine hosts a row of impressive mansions and residences. At the Aître Saint-Maclou, learn more about the plague epidemics that hit the Norman city.
In Rouen for a family weekend or business tourism, you simply must see some of its unmissable sites. The Hôtel de Bourgtheroulde, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Gros Horloge, Place du Vieux Marché, Saint-Ouen monastery and the church of Saint-Maclou have left visitors speechless with amazement. Top tip: during the Printemps de Rouen season, museums are free.
From the Fête du Ventre food festival, to the Armada (bringing together the world’s greatest sailing ships), Rouen sur Mer in summer, where the city’s riverside roads become beaches, and concerts as part of the Terrasses du jeudi throughout July, there’s always something happening. This is guaranteed make your stay in Rouen fun-filled !
