Strasbourg - FRANCE - UNESCO #495

Today, I only had one card on my mailbox, a official one from France with the beautiful city of Strasbourg! It's one of the cities I know best in France, mostly because it's where my sister in law lives and for a couple of times we've spent some days there (gros bisou Belita). Thank you very much Andrea. This postcard took 7 days to arrive!
   
UNESCO #495 - Grand Île, Strasbourg - FRANCE
 
Surrounded by two arms of the River Ill, the Grande Ile (Big Island) is the historic centre of the Alsatian capital. It has an outstanding complex of monuments within a fairly small area. The cathedral, the four ancient churches and the Palais Rohan – former residence of the prince-bishops – far from appearing as isolated monuments, form a district that is characteristic of a medieval town and illustrates Strasbourg's evolution from the 15th to the 18th century.
