Location & About the Area

Rouen is a city in the northwestern region of Normandy in France (pop. ~110,000). It is the historic capital of Normandy and the fifth-largest city in the region. The city has a rich history that spans over 2,000 years and has played an important role in the political, economic, and cultural life of France.

Perhaps best known as the city where Joan of Arc was put on trial and executed in 1431, her story is commemorated in a number of sites throughout the city, including the Tour Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc Tower) and the Place du Vieux-Marché (Old Market Square), where she was burned at the stake.

The city is also famous for its Gothic architecture, with the most notable example being the Rouen Cathedral, one of the largest and most magnificent cathedrals in France. The cathedral's construction began in the 12th century and was completed in the 16th century. It is known for its intricate facade, stunning stained glass windows, and grand nave.

Rouen is also home to a number of museums, including the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen (Museum of Fine Arts of Rouen), which houses an extensive collection of paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts from the 15th to the 21st century.

In addition to its historical and cultural attractions, Rouen is also a thriving modern city with a vibrant cultural scene, numerous restaurants and cafes, and a bustling nightlife. The city is known for its production of Calvados (apple brandy), and the surrounding region is famous for its dairy products, seafood, and cider.

Getting There

Rouen is easily accessible by several modes of transportation.

If you are traveling from outside of France, the closest international airport to Rouen is the Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, which is located about 130 kilometers (81 miles) away. From there, you can take a train or hire a car to reach Rouen.

Alternatively, you can also fly into the smaller Rouen Airport, which has limited connections to other French and European cities.

If you are traveling within France or from neighboring countries, you can reach Rouen by train. Rouen has two train stations, the Rouen Rive Droite and Rouen Rive Gauche, which are both served by high-speed TGV trains as well as regional trains.

If you prefer to drive, Rouen is located on several major highways, including the A13, A28, and A29, which connect the city to other parts of France and Europe.


Rouen has an oceanic climate, which is characterized by mild winters and cool summers, with moderate rainfall throughout the year. The average temperature in January, the coldest month, is around 4°C (39°F), while the average temperature in July, the warmest month, is around 18°C (64°F).
