Rouen: the Armada attracts visitors


These are the most beautiful boats in the world: 50 sailboats and warships are currently moored in Rouen, Seine-Maritime. 100,000 people flock every day on this platform, which seems to have returned to the days of the sailing navy. "It's like being in a pirate movie"smiles a visitor. On the ships, replicas of frigates of other centuries, the sailors rediscover the gestures of yesteryear, and especially wear the costumes of times.

On the docks, many soldiers, crew members from Mexico or Russia, are often very proud of their outfits. Sunday, June 9, in the morning, a mass of sailors was celebrated on the port. These boats will stay docked for another week and tours are free. The Armada of Rouen will end Sunday, June 16 by the great parade of all these ships.
