Once one of the most important cities of Upper Normandy, Rouen has become famous too for two of it’s great citizens: Joan of Arc, who was burnt at stake here; and Gustave Flaubert, infamous for his (then) racy novel, Madame Bovary. Its famous architecture is mostly Gothic, with a good scattering of half-timbered buildings. Also adding to it’s legacy is the ceramics museum that commemorates Rouen’s fame for the same through the 16th – 18th centuries.
