Rue Saint-Romain

The old meets the new on this narrow and atmospheric Rouen street, which features historic attractions, charming architecture and modern boutiques.

Amble down the short, cobbled Rue Saint-Romain to cut through the heart of historic Rouen. Shoppers come here to browse modern fashion stores and independent gift boutiques, stopping to refuel in cafés and restaurants. Sightseers, meanwhile, make their way to this picturesque street to visit a fascinating museum devoted to a well-known historical figure and to see the city’s famous cathedral. Don’t miss this picturesque, pedestrianized stretch of the city while exploring central Rouen. 

Marvel at the different eras of history on display down Rue Saint-Romain, which takes its name from a 7th-century Archbishop of Rouen. The archway of Portail des Libraires dates back to the 13th century. Look above the stone bases to see the half-timbered façades of houses that were built between the 15th and 18th centuries.

Browse the independent shops that occupy the ground floors of many of these historic buildings. Shop for books, fashion accessories and gifts as you stroll along this short street. Pause in a café or crêperie and enjoy some classic Normandy food, while appreciating the old-world ambiance. 

Learn about one of France’s most famous historical figures in the Museum of Joan of Arc. The museum is on the site where her trial took place. Browse the multimedia displays, which tell the story of the trial, before visiting the chapel where she was sentenced. 

The street runs alongside the vast Cathedral of Notre Dame de Rouen. This awe-inspiring church was built in the 12th century, then expanded in subsequent centuries. The vaulted ceilings, rose windows and Staircase of the Libraries make this one of the most impressive architectural and religious sights in Normandy. 

Rue Saint-Romain is open to the public all day throughout the year. Nearby sights include the Musée des Beaux-Arts, which is under 10 minutes’ walk away. The narrow, winding streets of Rouen’s old town are easiest to explore on foot, although trams do run to nearby streets.
