Unesco World Heritage Sites: The Medieval town of Provins in France
The medieval town of Provins, located about an hour East of Paris is perfectly charming. The city of about 11,000 residents is a little out of the way, but it’s a nice place to spend the day. However, during the middle ages, it was one of the most important cities in France. A gathering place for merchants from all over Europe and even beyond. The city is extraordinarily well preserved, bearing witness to the international trade fairs that used to take place here.
