The Rouen Castle is a historical castle of the town in Rouen, capital of the duchy of Normandy, now in France. It was built by Philip II of France from 1204 to 1210 following his capture of the duchy from John, Duke of Normandy and King of England. Located outside the medieval town to its north, in a dominant position, it played a military role in the Hundred Years’ War and the Wars of Religion.

The Joan of Arc History: for an introduction to the great 15th-century heroine and the events that earned her fame – and shortly thereafter condemnation – don’t miss this excellent new site. It’s less of a museum, and more of an immersive, theatre-like experience, where you walk through medieval corridors and watch (and hear via headphones) the dramatic retelling of Joan’s visions, her victories, the trial that sealed her fate, and the mythologising that followed in the years after her death.
