Versailles

The Grand Palace of Louis XIV, known as the Sun King. It abounds in the history of the French Monarchy, The French Revolution, and Marie Antoinette. From the moment you enter the Sun Gate you are surrounded by the symmetry of the grand architecture, gardens and the fountains.

Avignon

A beautiful historic French city with a long history. It has beautiful medieval buildings  with symmetrical features, dating back to the 1300’s when it was the French Papal seat.

Carcassone

The fortified walled town of Carcassonne is stunning. Just outside the walled town is the Canal Du Midi which was excavated in the 17th century and amazingly links the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. Its tree-lined banks and straight narrow path have a pleasing symmetry.
