Rouen is famous for its Cathedral, which was painting over 20 times by Claude Monet and Joan of Arc, she was tried, convicted and executed in Rouen. We spent just over 4 hours here and visited the Musee des Beaux Arts de Rouen (Fine Art Museum of Rouen), the Cathedral and then strolled the streets with their half timbered houses.
More photos of Rouen can be found here and here
We are staying in Vernon and today we went for a walk around the small town to take in the few sights and visit the small museum.
One of the main attractions in Vernon is the Old Mill House by the River Seine. In 1947 the owner of the house passed away and despite attempts no heir could be found. The house fell into disrepair and was only saved when the Town Hall intervened. Whilst it is not open to visit the view from outside is still stunning. This too, like Rouen Cathedral, was a favourite of Monet.
