In addition to the self-guided visit, a guided visit, the Grand Tour, is available at certain times.
A guide accompanies the group, providing all the information needed to fully appreciate the huge image of Rouen in 1431. The focus is on exchange and interaction between the guide and the group. The guided tour lasts 1 hour and begins with the exhibition that illustrates the historical context of Rouen at this pivotal time in the history of France. It continues with a presentation of the artist’s creative process, before entering the panorama and discovering the monumental fresco.
The Panorama Rouen 1431 depicts the hustle and bustle of Rouen, with its churches, half-timbered houses, inner courtyards and its bridge over the Seine. You can also see the hinterland and the Normandy countryside dotted with farms. Drawing on the fresco, the guide then calls attention to the different aspects of the highly diverse social, religious and commercial life of France’s second city, as well as the fate of Joan of Arc, which is forever linked to this city.
