Day 4: Rouen (4)

Gros Horloge, Rouen

After our visit to Rouen Cathedral, the River Baroness walking tour took us along the rue du Gros-Horloge to the Gros Horloge, an astronomical clock from the 18th Century.

While we watched, a maintenance worker ascended past the Gros Horloge's face in a cherry picker and climbed onto the roof above the clock.


"World's oldest McDonald's" in Rouen

Next, our walking tour took us past "the world's oldest McDonald's" (the claim is based on the age of the building, which predates the Big Mac by a few centuries).


Monoprix in Rouen

We also passed downtown Rouen's Monoprix, which occupies an historic building. (Monoprix is a leading French discount-store and supermarket chain.)
