Our first stop on this weekend French road trip was Rouen, the historic capital city of Normandy, France.
It's known for its Notre Dame Cathedrale (now, tell me which major european city/town isit??? ;p so many cathedrales to see in europe!!! they look alike to me sometimes.... ;p)
it's in Gothic style and the church bells, i can tell you -- they are still chiming loud and clear today!!
our hotel was directly opposite the cathedrale and yup 7+ in the morning, I was awakened by the chimes of the church bells.
then, there's the half timbered houses -- so well preserved and still in use today. they remind me of the german towns we saw during our German Road Trip last year.
and of course, the Gros Horloge which is a large astronomical clock.
More pictures coming up! stay tuned.
