  • On my way to Old Market Square from the Cathedral, I followed the Rue du Gros Horloge. In addition to beautiful wood-panelled houses, I noticed a beautiful mansion on the corner of Thouret Street, but, of course, it is the Big Clock that you can see from afar. It is superb and I was surprised to see the incredible sculptures of the Renaissance vault. The Rue du Gros Horloge is one of the most beautiful streets in Old Rouen.

  • This is THE downtown shopping street. Many well-known signs are present. Beautiful bakeries and chocolate factory. This "big clock" is beautiful and well restored. It's a nice ride to do. Very lively on Saturday afternoons.
