Trip Planner: Europe / France / Normandy / Haute-Normandie / Seine-Maritime / Rouen / Place du Vieux-Marche
Located in a city that traces its roots back to ancient Rome, Place du Vieux-Marche is most famous as the site where the English burned St. Joan of Arc at the stake. Today, it's hard to picture that gory scene in such a charming square, bordered by historical houses and cafes. As a reminder of the past, you can visit the square's large modern church, dedicated to St. Joan of Arc. Finished in 1979, it's built to represent an upturned Viking ship. The Vikings were among the groups that played an important part in settling the city.

Place du Vieux-Marche Reviews
Questa piazza molto frequentata non è niente di speciale, solo perchè è il posto in cui fu arsa Giovanna d'Arco (santa o pazza? la storia ancora non lo ha deciso) è molto frequentata da turisti more »This very popular square is nothing special, just because it is the place where Joan of Arc was burned (holy or crazy? the story still did not decide) is very popular with tourists
A indoor food market, loads of bars and restaurants, an odd but stunning building including yet another church, love music, souvenir shops, beautiful old buildings. Very much the heat of the old town. more »
