First, Notre Dame of Rouen, as, or even more beautiful than Paris Notre Dame.
Here, , I will immerse you in the medieval history of Rouen with the Gros Horloge Street, Joan of Arc square, and the Maclou Cloister.

Then let's continue our trip in the past with the Chateau Gaillard, just 50 mn away.
Here, you'll be stunned by the size and beauty of this castle called the "Handsome" for being erected in just 3 years for Richard the Lion Heart to be able to protect Normandy from the claims of Phillip the Great, king of France.
