Spending two days in Rouen, the capital of Normandy, you won’t want to miss the chance to visit Château Gaillard, a medieval castle occupied by English King, Richard the Lionheart. Joining this tour, you’ll roam the streets of Les Andelys town with specialist tour guide Ben Baillie, dressed up in chainmail armor as Richard the Lionheart. Together, you’ll ascend to the castle with ‘Richard’, listening to the stories of how the Duke of Normandy, ruling between 1189 and 1199, was an important Christian commander during the Third Crusade.
Also in Rouen, you will find the presence of Joan of Arc in several locations around the city. Visit the Joan of Arc History Museum that houses the remains of the Room of Officiality where Joan’s condemnation was announced in 1431 and see where she was tragically burned.
