Travel Tips for Metz
My fondest memory...
This group of young girls approached me while I was strolling in the plaza near an old church. They spoke English to me and offered me some candy hanging over the neck of one girl in green dress. They told me I need to pick it up using my mouth... In return, they cut the label of my underwear... They were having a bridal party.
Porte des Allemandes, other side
It's a view of the other side of the remains. I wanted to make a photo of mine here but unfortunately place was empty with people. The fortification is situated on the cross of Boulevard Andre Maginot and Rue des Allemandes.
This is THE place to come and admire the Temple Neuf. But not only. It's the busiest bridge where all the buses and traffic are taing the route, and lots of pedestrians of course. It takes you directly to the center. On the other side it leads to the Municipal park and a long quay.
Amusing beds with flowers all over Metz...
Thanks Jean-Louis (JLBG) I've learnt what does this figure mean.
“Amuzing beds” represents the figure of a very French cow-boy
popular cartoon series, Lucky Luke, the cowboy known to shoot faster than his
Lucky Luke is a creation of Morris, a Belgian comic strip writer (as I have been told by Luc (Luchonda). Thanks Luc for your correction on Luke! ha-ha!
Examine Eglise St.-Pierre aux Nonnains
This church is the oldest religious building in France. It was built in 310 under Constantine as a basilica. (It is similar to but smaller than another we have seen in Trier). It escaped destruction by Attila and in 610 became a Christian religious building. It underwent many internal modifications including vaulting of a nave and the erection outside of a cloister (15C) of which one side remains. The modernizations are easily visible when the building is circled. It was deconsecrated during the Revolution and was unused until 1870 when it served during the War as a place to house carrier pigeons. Its extremely unusual status finally has led to its preservation. The Nave was closed when we visited.
