Business trip to France
First trip to France after lockdowns..
Purchase of the day!- a large antique chandelier in the style of Louis XV. The chandelier is really gorgeous, in good condition, complete and has beautiful crystals! And that is important for us :) We will pack each crystal very carefully for transport back home. On this way we protect the fragile crystals that hang so long at this chandelier.. :)
After a long day of work- visiting & discovering the city
The impressive City Hall of Tours- built between 1896 and 1904 by the Touraine architect Victor Laloux. This monumental building and the Place Jean Jaurès evoke a Parisian layout.
The old centrum and medieval buildings
L'hôtel Goüin- built in the 15th century in magnificent Renaissance style. The house was a property of a family of silk merchants from Tours. Today is the home of Goüin Museum.
