Rouen is the historic capital of Normandy and soars with a hundred towers. Every hour of the day it lights up with colours that always reveal something new. This is shown by the cathedral and the famous painting by Claude Monet: the stones are in dialogue with the sun and the stained glass paintings are filled with light while showing the birthplace of Impressionism. There are hundreds of ways to discover Rouen and its historic centre. Take a stroll through the city's old quarter, where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in 1431. See more of the city's historic sights. For example, visit the Church of Joan of Arc, built on the site where she was burned. Also visit the city's courthouse, the picturesque atrium of the Aître Saint-Maclou and the cathedral, where Richard the Lionheart is buried.
