I had to Google the first one to make sure I was right. This town is mostly known for its earthenware made in a factory founded in 1821 by an Englishman.This medieval castel was owned by a minister of Henri IV with the same name as the chateau and vice versa. It was owned much, much later, by the French singer Charles Trenet.Here, an exhausted Joan of Arc probably slept. I don’t know about George Washington, though!
I have no idea. But the towers in the third photo, of the cathedral are curious looking. 19th century? Violet le Restorer?
From Wikipedia, “It was partially destroyed in 1568 by the Huguenots during the French Wars of Religion, but was rebuilt between 1601 and 1829.” They don’t say anything about the towers.Probably not, Violet-le-Duc was fifteen in 1829!
My grandfather was twelve years old in 1829
If you google the first nine words of the Wikipedia quote you get the answer. That’s amazing!
Thanks chm for the clue! Found it - so the towers are 19th century. They took a long time to build it:"The Revolution interrupted the work before the two towers were built, and these were only completed between 1817 and 1829."
I believe I know because I’ve stood on the middle of that bridge. I’m not going to say because I don’t want to ruin your surprise.
Well, that was fun. Hadn't a clue, but thanks to chm's excellent clues, and the Google Machine, I found them.
What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
