Indeed, with more than 236 listed buildings, Rouen is the city with the highest concentration of listed buildings per inhabitant. The Cathedral of Notre Dame de Rouen, the Gros-Horloge, the Place du Vieux-Marché, the Abbey of Saint-Ouen, the Church of Saint-Maclou or the Château Robert le Diable, there is a tourist site around every corner. A city of history, Rouen is also renowned for having lived through the trial and torture of Joan of Arc.
A city with many facets, the city centre of Rouen mixes half-timbered houses, colourful facades, cobbled streets and buildings with more futuristic silhouettes. Crossed by the Seine, Rouen is also a large port city. The port of Rouen stretches 120 km from the Seine estuary to Rouen, giving it the title of Europe's leading cereal port. Every year, the port hosts a gathering of the largest sailing ships in the world such as the Belem or the Marité. An event that attracts millions of visitors every year.
