"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."
"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。"Source UNESCO WH website http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/495
