Day 4: Rouen (5)

Saint Joan of Arc Church, Rouen

The final stop on our walking tour was l'église Jeanne d'Arc, or the Joan of Arc Church, which faces the Place du Vieux Marché.

L'eglise Jeanne d'Arc, Rouen

L'eglise Jeanne d'Arc. Rouen

The church was designed by the architect Louis Arretche, and it was completed in 1979. The modern interior incorporates a stained-glass window from the Church of Saint-Saveur, which was destroyed more than two centuries earlier.

The ruined foundations of the old Saint-Saveur Church were still visible in the square:

Cross where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake

Outside the église Jeanne d'Arc, a cross stood near the spot where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in 1431.

Chouette pastry in Rouen

Our tour ended on a more cheerful note, with Ramona Kurcsics--the cruise manager on River Baroness--passing out chouettes pastries from a nearby bakery.

Joan of Arc Museum sign in Rouen

Leaving the Old Market Square (and this sign for the Joan of Arc Museum) behind, we headed back to the ship on our own.

RIVER BARONESS at high tide in Rouen

When we reached River Baroness, the tide was in, and the main deck was above the level of the quay. (At high tide, we were able to use the smaller of the two gangways in this photo; the gangway from the Sun Deck was used only at low tide, when the main deck was below the pier.)
