Superb place by which to navigate Rouen. Early morning and twilight provide great photo op lighting. Stately and refined, we liked it better than the astronomical clock in Prague.

This clock has a very detailed face and is worth standing and staring at. Looks different at sunset. Go in the morning between 0730 and 0900 for good photographs

It is an interesting sculptural composition in a little arch. Too many tourists around, but, anyway, it looks quite nice. There is a big market nearby where you can try different food. Farmars are really friendly :) The place is in the historical center, so...More

On first glance this clock seems to be rather small on the inside, but behind the beautiful facade there is an entire building with multiple rooms to be discovered from which you can leer onto the street down below. Not only that, but you will...More

We came across this amazing clock while exploring the town. It is double faced so can be viewed from the side with smaller crowds. The whole structure is beautiful to behold and functions as a clock, lunar calendar and shows the days of the week....More

Well worth the few euros to visit the inside of this small complex of buildings, including the area behind the clock faces. An audio guide provides and interesting background to its origins and development.

It's an easy walk - it's fairly level. I have one knee replaced and the other needs to be done. I always use a cane when touring (otherwise at home I don't) to give you some idea of how mobile I am.
