495 FR - Strasbourg – Grande île (1988)

Brief Description

"Surrounded by two arms of the River Ill, the Grande Ile (Big Island) is the historic centre of the Alsatian capital. It has an outstanding complex of monuments within a fairly small area. The cathedral, the four ancient churches and the Palais Rohan – former residence of the prince-bishops – far from appearing as isolated monuments, form a district that is characteristic of a medieval town and illustrates Strasbourg's evolution from the 15th to the 18th century."

斯特拉斯堡与大岛

"地处伊尔河怀抱的格朗德岛(大岛)是阿尔萨斯首都的历史中心,在相当小的范围内,耸立着著名的古迹建筑群。主教堂、四个古代教堂和罗汉宫(主教们以前的住所)看起来像一个个孤立的古迹,实际上却构成了一个典型的中世纪城镇,体现了斯特拉斯堡从15至18世纪的发展变迁。"
