Cinema roanne

Reviewed By Lordslayer

I dislike dubbed movies and sadly this cinema only screens one movie in original version every Monday.
That makes it very hard for anyone who's unable to go to the movies on Mondays to enjoy an OV film.
And it's only one movie, so even if you can go to the cinema on a Monday, with only one displaying in English, chances are it aint gonna be the movie you'd like to watch.
Apart from that it's a nice place.

La Tour Saint Maurice

Reviewed By Gert K - Odense, Denmark

Dont forget to visit the smal Roanne neighborhourd St Jean St Maurice. The views from the tower are just stunning. One of the loveliest places to get in this area og France. The Loire river, the areas around and the nice little really french lunch restaurants in the city - what an afternoon to spend :)
There's a circular walk close to the river ....

Port de Plaisance

Reviewed By David R - Neutral Bay, Australia

The Port de Plaisance, Roanne is a key attraction in Roanne situated next to the Loire river,
While the main attraction is for pleasure boats and barges of all sizes and shapes mooring for varying periods, the port offers facilities for other interest groups including a well serviced camping car park, pleasant walks and grounds around the port with safe children's Playgrounds.
Strolling around the port looking at the attractive boats is a well worn pastime for locals and visitors alike.
There's masses of free car parking pretty well all round the port surrounds and while no actual places to eat at the port, the surrounding streets offer plenty of choices for light meals or a fully indulgent lunch!
The town centre with markets, shops, cinema's and tons of restaurants and bars is only a stone's throw away.

Les Halles Diderot

Reviewed By David R - Neutral Bay, Australia

Yum Yum, OK so pretty well all markets get my vote and indoor markets have one added benefit...there's usually a decent noshery or two on site as well so after trooping around all that scrumptious food you're always ready for a mid morning snack or better still lunch.
Roanne's indoor market while not the biggest on the planet has something for all tastes...it's exceptionally well diversified in foods and the presentation of all the stands is nothing short of fantastic.....fresh fruits and veg, several great fish mongers and one where you can sit down for a snack or lunch of fresh oysters, clams or prawns with a glass or two of Chablis, great butchers and deli's with an awesome range of meats, poultry ( including pintade and pheasant) and pate's, there's a great and knowledgeable wine merchant with tastings on offer and a delightful wood fired bakery. Don't forget the sensational creamery and cheese specialist it's heaven and to top it all a world class tea and coffee roaster / emporium where you can have a coffee while you make your selection. If you're into food then there's something to delight the senses at every turn. Opening hours:
Every day except Mondays
Tue, Wed, Thur: 8h-12h30 et 15h30- 19H30
Fri & Sat : 8h-12h30 et 15h-19h.30
Sun: 9h-12h

Musee de Beaux Arts et d'Archeologie Joseph Dechelette

Reviewed By Maree J - Hobart, Australia

Excellent regional museum with amazing contents! No elevator though???? A lovely young man with perfect English can answer all your questions!! This museum deserves and needs patronising and a lot of money from the French government to display its wonderful contents! What a regional gem! 15-16C Dutch collection is excellent if you are an art historian; go and see the medieval spectacles on bald monk in the end room (full of 12-12-13-14 century Christian items;) African Masks; Egyptian articfacts; I went twice and could go again and again! Love this place! Its Roannes best tourist attraction! Promote this to Australaian and New Zealnders - we have nothing like this! Its fantastic! So may awesome paintings in one place! Wish you could stay here! Great place to do do a scholarship research orresearch an art paper for a journal or periodical. Very quiet. Charming!

Eglise Saint-Etienne

Reviewed By DanishTravelor - Copenhagen, Denmark

Den første kirke på dette sted blev opført omkring 1343 som klosterkirke. Kirken blev ødelagt hele fire gange, og hver gang genopbygget.
Den nuværende kirke, som er i nygotisk stil stammer fra 1844. Koret er dog fra begyndelsen af 1900-tallet.
Siden 1423 har Saint-Étienne fungeret som sognekirke.
Kirkens ydre er præget af det flotte, firkantede og brede tårn som dominerer bygningen, men ellers ligner kirken så mange andre mindre nygotiske kirker.
I tympanonet på forsiden af kirken ses steningen af Étienne (Steffen).
Til gengæld var det noget af en overraskelse at træde ind i kirken!!
Rummet er indrettet som en basilika, det vil sige en aflang kirke med et stort midterskib, hvor der er højt til loftet flankeret af enten et eller sjældnere to skibe med lavere loftshøjde på hver siden af midterskibet.
Men her i Église Saint-Étienne er alle rammer for symmetri sprængt: Kirken har ét skib på højre side og to skibe på venstre side af midterskibet.
Jeg måtte knibe mig selv i armen inden jeg troede mine egne øjne!
På internettet er der kun sparsomme oplysninger om kirkens historie, og jeg har slet ikke kunnet finde noget om, hvorfor Saint-Étienne har fire skibe og ikke kun tre.
Men mit gæt er, at det skyldes den ombygning der blev afsluttet i 1844. Inden den blev sat i gang var der blevet opkøbt grunde og fjernet huse omkring kirken for at kirken kunne udvides, og det er nærliggende at forestille sig, at der kun har været mulighed for at udvide med et skib til venstre side og ikke til begge sider.
Men om det er rigtigt hvad jeg skriver ved jeg ikke.
Kirkens orgel blev bygget af firmaet Daublaine Callinet og opstillet i Notre-Dame i Paris i 1841, hvor instrumentet fungerede som kororgel. I 1857 blev det købt af sognepræsten ved Église Saint-Étienne og opstillet i kirken i 1861. Det er senest blevet restaureret i 2013.
Da jeg havde besøgt kirken, gik jeg over i turistinformationen over for kirken, og spurgte om, hvorfor kirken har fire skibe, og jeg fik følgende svar af en venlig ansat: ”Har den fire skibe?? – Det vidste jeg ikke, for jeg har aldrig været inde i kirken”. Jeg anbefalede den venlige ansatte at besøge kirken og ønskede en god dag.

Eglise Sainte-Anne

Reviewed By DanishTravelor - Copenhagen, Denmark

På modsat side af Gare de Roanne end centrum af byen ligger, ikke langt fra stationen, Église Sainte-Anne, som jeg nåede at besøge inden mit tog afgik fra stationen.
Sainte-Anne er nærmest en nygotisk katedral i lille format. Kirken blev opført i 1863 og udvidet i 1890.
Kirken indre er en treskibet basilika og kirkens orgel er opstillet bag hovedalteret.
Opholder man sig på Gare de Roanne og har lidt tid til overs, er det værd at besøge denne lille kirke. Der er kun meget sparsomme oplysninger på internettet om denne kirke.
