4/46.- Alsace, Strasbourg, covered bridges
Strasbourg is the capital of Alsace and, since 1949, one of the
Europe. Its one-towered cathedral is recognizable from a great distance.
The "Ponts Couverts" ("covered bridges" across
the Ill, the river on which
Strasbourg is built) shown in this picture are part of the 15th-century
fortifications of the town.
