This city is the reflection at once of the greatness of french and european history.
Rich by its past in numerous fields (scientific, religious, culinary...), the city was nicknamed as " the City of a Thousand Spires" by Victor Hugo. More over the place have undergone several attacks and wars, starting from the early viking invasions then the Hundred Years' War, Wars of religions and ending by violent bombing of WWII which have destoyed a huge area.By this way, Rouen is a combination of modern and medieval architectural style.
Today, Rouen is Normandy's administrative centre and capital.
Rouen welcomes once every five years Armada (prestigious exposition along the quays of world's warships). The next Armada is in 2019 ;) (for the lucky ones).
The local committee is impatient to welcome you each year !
