Quite literally, this is about time: a clock, no less.
This is the Great Clock (Gros Horlogue) in Rouen, France, which dates from the 16th century and sits amoung the maze of narrow streets that make up the old part of town. The half-timbered houses that line the streets seem to be always freshly painted and look smart.
Rouen is, of course, Joan of Arc’s town, and the church dedicated to her is truly wonderful. It is set near the market square which has stalls selling the most amazing cheeses – always a reason for visiting this area.
