About these ratings

This modern-looking church sits on the site of Jeanne d'Arc's (or Joan of Arc, to us Yanks) burning. The 19-year-old girl was burned at the stake for heresy in 1431. Today, you can tour this contemporary church (the exterior of which is reminiscent of fish scales) at Place du Vieux-Marché in Rouen.

One Yahoo! Travel user recommends taking a look at the stained glass windows: "Go up close and look at them. … The large colored glass is the religious stained glass but the little scenes are historic and utterly charming." One TripAdvisor user says the futuristic look of the church seemed somewhat out of place in quaint Rouen, but also says; "we still enjoyed visiting the church and the surrounding area including the town square and the open air farmers market. The chocolate croissants at the stand near the Joan of Arc church were awesome!"

Open daily, you can visit this museum for free.
