Des fênetres de Provins



Windows in Provins


With just a quick train ride out of Paris (from Gare de l'Est)
you can be in the midst of a Medieval village
with a panoramic view of the landscape. 


Many of the 11th century buildings are relatively unchanged.
 It is an easy day trip out of Paris and has a very quiet, peaceful feeling.



16, rue du Four des Raines
77160, Provins

I've never seen architecture like this before Genie. What a fascinating find.

I love Provins. I took a day trip there once with my classmates and I still have good memories of it.

Totally in LOVE!
Beautiful. Makes me want to move to a new house or should I say Villa apartment with these charming windows.

Neat windows, and I really like the stonework.

I love the asymmetric ironwork.
