Day 2
Rouen

The capital of the region of Normandy, Rouen lies along the River Seine, just 75 miles from its entrance on the English Channel. Rouen is perhaps most famous for being the site of the trial of Joan of Arc. Rouen also boasts a wealth of gothic architecture, which has named it the nickname “city of a hundred spires”. The most notable buildings are the spectacular Cathedrale Notre Dame and the Eglise St. Maclou, which is home to some of the finest wood carvings in France. Until the 19th century, Rouen was also the main seaport in France and is still a pleasure to sail to and from, with a varied and beautiful surrounding scenery, full of cliffs, forests, chateaux and abbeys.

Throughout history, many maritime journeys were initiated from Honfleur, including Paulmier de Gouenville’s sailing to Brazil, and Jean Denis’ exploration of the St. Lawrence River. It is highly regarded as a settlement of charming historic features, with particular mention of the slate-and-timber fronted houses that overlook the colourful yacht and fishing harbour.
