PROVINS – UNESCO site

May 5, 2011

This comes from a Postcrossing friend in France. It is Provins, a UNESCO site. UNESCO tellls a little more about the town.

The fortified medieval town of Provins is situated in the former territory of the powerful Counts of Champagne. It bears witness to early developments in the organization of international trading fairs and the wool industry. The urban structure of Provins, which was built specifically to host the fairs and related activities, has been well preserved.

This postcard is the Porte Saint Jean.
