The best terraces

When the sun comes out, what could be better than sitting on the terraces in Rouen and having lunch or just sipping a drink? We all dream about it! But where to go in Rouen to enjoy this relaxing moment?

Rouen has a choice...

You will easily find a terrace where you delight in the historic heart of Rouen, place du Vieux-Marché or place de la Pucelle, a few steps away from the story of Joan of Arc. Or Place de la Cathédrale, Place de la Calende or Place Barthélémy with a view of the unmissable cathedral (for the first two) and Saint-Maclou church.

In the heart of the historic center of Rouen

  • The huge terrace of l’espace du Palais, allée Eugène Delacroix, has no shortage of tables where to settle peacefully a few steps from the Parliament of Normandy.
  • The Place du 19 avril 1944 with its famous central fountain is also an ideal place to lounge on the terrace as a couple, with family or friends.
  • On Sunday morning, after your walk to the market, take the opportunity to quench your thirst or have lunch around a table on the Place Saint-Marc.
  • The Saint-Amand and Lieutenant Aubert squares as well as the rue eau-de-Robec also offer a charming setting to have a drink under the umbrellas while admiring the wooden walls so characteristic of the capital of Normandy.
  • Left bank,the rue Saint-Sever offers tables with a view of the pretty pink church of Saint-Sever.
