Rouen


700 half-timbered structures in old Rouen
 
Not all are completely up-right
 
The very famous Rouen clock
 
A flamboyant Gothic church, not 100m from the Cathedral (the place is full of churches); the flags make it even more special
 
At the flam church...not Brussels
 
Monet and Joan of Arc own this town; here is where she was tried (the first time)

And here is where she was burned
 
Statue in the Joan church

Black Death victims were buried in this square
 
Detail

Bodies, by the 1000s, deposited down this well
 
On a cheerier note, employees of the tourist office are outfitted by Printemps (Travel Montana note)
Moving day in the city
