Everyone who comes to Rouen goes under ” Le gros horloge“, literally the big clock. Which is not unusual said in English because it is quite big.
But if you speak French, this name is already an oddity. Why?? The word clock is normally a feminine noun in French.
So, saying “Le gros horloge” is incorrect.
But somehow in Rouen, they broke the rule by naming this clock like this. :). I have no idea why it was done so.
We have never been up the clock tower during our past trips through Rouen. This time, D & I climbed up the clock tower and looked upon Rouen from there. I will show you the next time, as I have to choose and sort the photos.
Below are some scenes from the outside and inside of that big bling clock :

Don’t forget the post before this one with D’s pics( featuring a very happy find). Thanks to the kindness of a stranger.
