The Tour Jeanne d'Arc - Rouen ... June 2011






The Tour Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc Tower) is the last trace of a castle which was demolished at the end of the 16th century. Built at the beginning of the 13th century by Philippe Auguste, it was in this dungeon-tower in Rouen that Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc) was imprisoned and threatened with torture in 1430. Her trial had been committed to the castle.






Sorry I have not really written much , but I am sure the pictures speak volumes!!

  4. The photos are great. My daughter was supposed to go study in Rouen next year but now she is switching colleges -- and majors. I think she will study theater now. Maybe she'll make it to London instead.

  6. Hi Anne,
    This is an interesting place. I remember thinking about Jeanne when D & I came to Rouen.
    Jeanne is a passionate woman. I feel the injustice of even centuries later of her death :(.
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos xoxo.
