日出时分的古老城堡 The old castle at sunrise

皮埃尔丰城堡,法国皮卡第大区

皮埃尔丰城堡拥有丰富而复杂的历史,可追溯到中世纪。它建于14世纪,由法国国王查理六世的兄弟路易斯·奥尔良 (Louis d'Orléans) 在一座古老城堡的废墟上建造。 在17世纪初被路易十三的军队围困并拆除后,这座城堡一直是废墟,直到19世纪拿破仑三世要求建筑师Viollet-le-Duc对其进行修复。这将使用创新的重建技术来修复城堡受损的部分。

Chateau de Pierrefonds, France

Pierrefonds Castle has a rich and complex history dating back to the Middle Ages. It was built in the 14th century by Louis d'Orléans, brother of King Charles VI of France, on the ruins of an older castle. After being besieged and then dismantled at the beginning of the 17th century by the troops of Louis XIII, the castle remained in ruins until the 19th century when Napoleon III asked the architect Viollet-le-Duc to restore it. This will use innovative reconstruction techniques to restore the damaged parts of the castle.

之城的光之季 Season of light in the City of Light

巴黎老佛爷百货公司

巴黎的老佛爷百货无疑是任何一个城市中最宏伟的商店之一。它不仅是一个购物的地方,也是光之城最受欢迎的目的地。在百货公司日渐衰落,整个零售业也在发生变化的时候,Galerie依然坚守着。它在金融危机、战争和现在的互联网中幸存了下来,仍然是巴黎生活中值得庆祝的一部分。像纽约的梅西百货或洛克菲勒中心一样,老佛爷百货是假日的代名词。每逢假日,商店的招牌彩色玻璃圆顶下都会装饰一棵巨大的杉树,这是巴黎人世代以来一直信奉的圣诞庆祝仪式。

Galeries Lafayette, Paris

Surely one of the grandest stores found in any city is the Galeries Lafayette in Paris. It's not just a place to shop but a destination as popular as any in the City of Light. At a time when department stores are fading and the entire retail industry is shifting, the Galerie holds fast. It has survived financial crises, wars, and now the internet, remaining a celebrated part of life in Paris. Like Macy's or Rockefeller Center in New York, the Galeries Lafayette is synonymous with the holidays. A giant fir is decorated every holiday season under the store's signature stained glass dome—a ritual of Christmas cheer that Parisians have embraced for generations.

科雷兹的宝石 Jewel of Correze

图伦内

Turenne是法国中部新阿基坦地区Corrèze省的一个公社。它的特点是它的高度和在悬崖顶部的独特位置。山顶城镇图雷纳俯瞰着四面八方的乡村。在顶上,仍然保留着13世纪中世纪的图尔纳城堡遗址。这座城堡是中世纪法国最强大的王朝之一——图雷纳子爵的封建权力基础。从中世纪早期到18世纪,他们统治利穆赞、佩里戈和昆西地区近10个世纪。

Turenne

Turenne is a commune in the Corrèze department in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in central France. It is characterized by its height and unique position on top of a cliff. The hilltop town of Turenne overlooks the countryside in all directions. Atop the hill, there remain the ruins of the 13th-century medieval Château de Turenne. This castle served as the feudal powerbase of one of the most powerful dynasties in medieval France - the Viscounty of Turenne. They reigned over the regions of Limousin, Périgord, and Quercy for almost 10 centuries from the early Middle Ages until the 1700s.

从天而降的魔法 Magic fallen from the sky

Roland's Breach in the Pyrenees

This is the kind of image in front of which one cannot help but emit a "wow" of wonder. We are in front of the Roland's Breach, located on the periphery of the Cirque de Gavarnie, in the Hautes-Pyrénées, and behind which flow the billions of stars of the Milky Way. Very popular with hikers, this gap is a natural hole, 40 meters wide and 70 meters deep. Located at an altitude of 2807 meters, it plays the role of a mountain pass which marks the border between Spain and France on all its width.

According to the legend, the breach was created by Roland, Charlemagne's nephew, while he was trying to destroy his sword by hitting it against the rock.

The Cirque de Gavarnie is one of the most impressive sites in the French Pyrenees and was even listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

比利牛斯山脉的罗兰豁口

这是一种让人忍不住发出“哇”一声惊叹的图像。我们就在罗兰豁口的前面,位于上皮雷内的加瓦尼圆环的边缘,银系的数十亿颗恒星就在这一缺豁口的后面。非常受徒步旅行者欢迎,这个豁口是一个天然的,宽40米,深70米。它位于海拔2807米处,起着口的作用,在整个宽度上标志着西班牙和法国之间的边界。

根据传说,这个豁口是查理曼大帝的侄子罗兰(Roland)创造的,当时他正试图用剑撞击岩石来摧毁他的剑。

加瓦尼马戏团是法国比利牛斯山脉最令人印象深刻的景点之一,1997年甚至被联合国教科文组织列为世界遗产

到了芒通,就来点柠檬汁吧 If given Menton, make lemonade

Menton, France

Anchoring the eastern end of the French Riviera near the Italian border is Menton, the so-called 'Pearl of France.' It's prized for its beauty and incredible weather that features an average of 316 days a year with full or partial sun. That climate enables Merton to enjoy amazing lemon yields that have given rise to the annual Fête du Citron, or Menton Lemon Festival, a 17-day extravaganza in February featuring floats and sculptures created out of lemons and oranges. More than 200,000 visitors marvel at the nearly 150 tons of fruit used in the festival.

Owing to its strategic location, Menton and its surrounding locale have been coveted by various powers for centuries. The princes of Monaco, Napoleon III, German Nazi forces, and the King of Sardinia among others have all held sway over this jewel of the Côte d'Azur. These days, Menton has something for everyone—gorgeous gardens, pastel-painted architecture, beaches, cafes, nightlife, and of course, lemons.

芒通,法国

芒通是法国里维埃拉的东端,靠近意大利边境,是所谓的“法国明珠”它以其美丽和令人难以置信的天气而闻名,一年平均有316天全天或部分阳普照。这种气候使默顿能够享受到令人惊叹的柠檬产量,这也催生了一年一度的柠檬节,或称“芒通柠檬节”(Menton lemon Festival),这是一场在2月举行的为期17天的盛会,以柠檬和橘子为原料制作的车和雕塑。超过20万名游客惊叹于节日期间使用的近150吨水果。

由于其战略位置,芒通及其周边地区几个世纪以来一直为各大国所觊觎。摩纳哥王子、拿破仑三世、德国纳粹部队和撒丁岛国王等都控制着这颗蔚蓝海岸的宝石。如今,芒通为每个人都提供了一些东西:华丽的花园、粉彩的建筑、海滩、咖啡馆、夜生活,当然还有柠檬。

一望无际的田野 Fragrant fields as far as the eye can see

Lavender fields on the Valensole Plateau in Provence, France

We're sorry. The scratch 'n' sniff option was not ready in time for this photo, so you'll have to imagine the intoxicating fragrance wafting over you…. Today we're in the lavender fields that carpet the Valensole Plateau in Provence, France. A rolling 300 square miles of flowers color the landscape as far as the eye can see. Vincent van Gogh spent time here, and featured lavender in some of his paintings. June is the start of the lavender season, and though it runs till August, peak viewing (and smelling) time varies a little with fluctuations in temperature and rainfall. There are lovely villages that you can meander while visiting the lavender fields, stopping for a pastry or crunchy-soft baguette at an outdoor cafe.

Hot, dry summers and plenty of sun help lavender thrive in the South of France and other countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. While we think the sight of lavender fields is relaxing in itself, the herb is always in demand for its essential oil, which lends a soothing scent to cosmetics, cleaning products, and even food. Some studies suggest that lavender can improve your sleep, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve anxiety and depression. The powerful plant was also used as an antiseptic in days gone by, as it has antimicrobial and antiviral properties.

法国普罗旺斯瓦伦索高原上的薰衣草田

我们很抱歉。抓挠和嗅嗅选项没有及时为这张照片做好准备,所以你必须想象那令人陶醉的香味飘荡在你身上…。今天,我们来到了覆盖法国普罗旺斯瓦伦索高原的薰衣草田。绵延300平方英里的朵为眼前的风景增添了色彩。文森特·梵高在这里度过了一段时间,在他的一些画作中以薰衣草为特色。6月是薰衣草季节的开始,虽然一直持续到8月,但观赏(和闻)的高峰期会随着温度和降雨量的波动而略有变化。这里有一些可爱的村庄,你可以一边漫步,一边参观薰衣草田,一边在户外咖啡馆吃糕点或松脆柔软的法式面包。

炎热干燥的夏季和充足的阳有助于薰衣草在法国南部和其他地中海沿岸国家茁壮成长。虽然我们认为看到薰衣草田本身就很轻松,但这种草本植物总是需要它的精油,它能给化妆品、清洁产品甚至食物带来舒缓的香味。一些研究表明,薰衣草可以改善睡眠,减轻疼痛和炎症,改善焦虑和抑郁。这种强大的植物在过去的几天里也被用作防腐剂,因为它具有抗菌和抗病毒的特性。
