Key Facts about Rouen


Here are some facts about Rouen:
  1. Rouen is the capital of the Upper Normandy (French: Haute-Normandie) region of France.

  2. As of 2007, Rouen had an estimated population of 109,000, and the metropolitan area had an estimated population of 541,410.

  3. People from Rouen are called Rouennais.

  4. During the Middle Ages, Rouen was one of the capitals of the Anglo-Norman dynasties that ruled England and large parts of France from 1066 until the mid 15th century.

  5. Rouen was the scene of Joan of Arc's execution in 1431.

  6. Today Rouen is known for its Gothic cathedral (which was the subject of a series of paintings by Claude Monet, its historic astronomical clock (Gros Horloge), Rouen Castle, and its many surviving half-timbered buildings.

  7. After its original spire was destroyed by a fire caused by lightning in 1822, a new spire was added to Rouen Cathedral, the lantern tower. This tower was topped with an iron spike, and when completed in 1876, the new spire made Rouen Cathedral the tallest building in the world - a title it held until 1880 when overtaken by the construction of Cologne Cathedral (German: Kölner Dom) in Cologne, Germany.

  8. Rouen was also the home of the French Grand Prix for a period. It intermittently hosted the race on the nearby Rouen-Les-Essarts track between 1952 and 1968.
