The city centre of Rouen.

Rouen, located in Normandy 1 hour from Castel Camping Le Brévedent and Paris, is a city full of history and charm. Known as the place where Joan of Arc was judged and executed, Rouen played a major role in the history of France. The cobbled streets of the city centre are full of old buildings and half-timbered houses, testifying to its rich past.

The Notre-Dame cathedral.

The Notre Dame Cathedral, with its impressive Gothic façade, is a must for architecture lovers. Strolling through the picturesque streets of Rouen is like going back in time and discovering history at every corner. In addition to the famous cathedral, you can visit the Gros-Horloge, a 14th century astronomical clock that dominates the heart of the city.
