Hi, this is an English "speaking" site, so you would probably get a better response if you posted your question as such.

Hi, to be honest with you I was looking for replies from Francophones only; otherwise I wouldn't have posted in French...but thanks for your comment nonetheless.

You might check pedmar's Angers Transportation Tips at http://www.virtualtourist.com/travel/Europe/France/Pays_de_la_Loire/Angers-138874/Transportation-Angers-BR-1.html

He's French so meets your criteria. The link above should take you directly to pedmar's Angers Transportation Page but if it doesn't, just click on his name above to go to his Home Page. Then click on his Angers Travel Page and look for Tips on Transportation.

Bonne chance!

Travel Tips for Angers

The Origins of Tapestry (See It Now!)

by hquittner

Wall hangings in tents("double-layering") must have been discovered in prehistoric times as a way to diminish cold (and heat?), prevent wind entry and diminish dust. At first hides and other animal skin products were used; woven materials were rare. The quality of the pelts and hanging objects gave rise to interior decoration and indicated wealth and power. Cloth (woven fibers) is found in Egypt in 2000 BC, but tapestry weaving first appears in China in 400AD and spread slowly through Japan, Persia and Turkey, reaching the West in 1000 AD. At that time it was mostly woolen and silk rugs. The first Art Tapestries were in the early 1300's as personal heraldic designs and patterns (like the Oriental Rugs). Entrepreneurship rapidly expanded the output after 1350, and the Valois family who competed with each other as great Art patrons, encouraged pictorial tapestry. At that time painting was on manuscripts (small) and on wood or walls (not very portable). Nicolas Bataille became very adept at supplying their needs and soon their halls were decorated with portable tapestries. The earliest tapestry series still exissting is here in Angers, the Apocalypse. A few of another series of the same period and workshops are in the Cloisters, N.Y.C. Prior to that there are a few embroidered wall hangings, like the 11C embroidery called the "Bayeux Tapestry" in that city. Tapestry work spread rapidly through North Germany and around Flanders (Arras, Tournai and Brussels). At the beginning of the 1500's the Mille-fleurs (thousand flowers) background pattern became popular and it remains so today as seen in this tapestry which probably belongs to the Manorial Life series at the Cluny Museum in Paris (See our Cluny Tips). Two other mille-fleurs series involving aUnicorn are the most popular in the World (at the Cluny and the Cloisters). There is another series in the Chateau called the "Passion Tapestries", see them too. There are more tapestries in the Chateau and the Cathedral and 20C tapestries in the Musee Lurcat across the river in the Hospital of St. John.

St. John's Hospital -- The Gardens

by shrimp56

When you visit Musée Jean Lurçat to see Le Chant du Monde, don't miss the gardens. On addition to the gardens you will see much evidence that the hospital was spent almost 100 years as The Museum of Archaelogy as many bits and pieces are scattered around the grounds.

Festival Premiers Plans

by sheldon_j

This film festival is held in Angers every January. It's a festival of "young European cinema". 60 films debut as part of a competition including feature films, short films & student-made films. There also theme nights dedicated to certain film genres, as well as certain movie personalities, with readings of first scripts, courses to take in cinema, film industry conferences, etc.

See What is Inside the Fortress (Chateau) Walls

by hquittner

The nearest buildings are the chapel and the ancient residence. All around us are carefully sculpted gardens and one with hedges in very creative topiary forms. Beyond this area extending to the far wall is the modern exhibition building that houses the great Apocalypse Tapestries. Inside the other buildings there is an entire history of tapestries which you must see in addition to those of the Apocalypse.

Jardin des Plantes

by TimDaoust

I hear this garden is even better than the Jardin du Mail...but again, I didn't make it here and I regret it but plan on returning in December. It was a research garden started by the botanical society but in February 1900 it was turned into a public garden. It is chock full of exotic plants and trees and has a very romantic atmosphere. Tell me how it is if you go.
