Claude Monet was inspired as you will be to by the ornate towers of the Rouen Cathedral. Once the tallest building in the world, this church has been struck by lightning, bombed and ruined, only to be rebuilt to its majestic stature time again. Monet painted a series of the cathedral in different lighting in the late 1800s.
From your luxury hotel take a stroll along the Seine and discover the rich history of Joan of Arc.
