Sorry I'm very busy right now so I didn't got the time to update this blog. I received this beautiful card last week from France from MICH29 via The Netherlands RR - Group 58 UNESCO. It is my first UNESCO site from France and it shows the Tower of Vauban. It is a recent addition to the world heritage list because its on the list since 2008. I like the simplicity of this card :)
"Fortifications of Vauban consists of 12 groups of fortified buildings and sites along the western, northern and eastern borders of France. They represent the finest examples of the work of Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707), a military engineer of King Louis XIV. The serial property includes towns built from scratch by Vauban, citadels, urban bastion walls and bastion towers. There are also mountain forts, sea forts, a mountain battery and two mountain communication structures. This property is inscribed as bearing witness to the peak of classic fortifications, typical of western military architecture. Vauban also played a major role in the history of fortification in Europe and on other continents until the mid-19th century."
