Paris, Horloge du Palais

Pour voir l’horloge

 

The clock was commissioned by King Charles V in 1371 to give the city of Paris official time, until then given by the bells of the churches often poorly coordinated... Over the centuries, it was restored and transformed several times and then it eventually stopped. Recently restored as it appeared in the 17th century, it was equipped with a State of the art movement: electric radio-synchronized on France Inter. Since then, she gives Paris the official time!

Pour voir le Seine et les ponts

 

Alors que Paris s’éveille… Pont d’Arcole, Pont de Notre Dame, Pont au Change, Pont Neuf, Ponts des Arts, Pont du Carrousel et Pont Royal… défilent, dans une procession d’enfants sage, sur l’eau paisible de la Seine.

The stained glass windows of the choir of 1435-40 are part of a larger former cycle. Sixteen of the twenty one panels are in their original position. The central window shows Christ on the cross between the holy Virgin and saint Jon flanked by de saint Vincent and saint Laurent the patron of this church, in the Middle range the Magi and below saint Peter, saint Paul and saint Jean. The left panel shows, from top to bottom the annunciation, the visitation and the birth of Christ. The panel on the right shows the circumcision at the top, the presentation at the temple in the middle and the reunion in the temple at the bottom.

 

 

 

The panorama of the island of the Giudecca to the Doge’s Palace. Behind the churches, palaces and houses with beautiful facades of the 18e stands the industrial scenes of Mestre, where soon could rise Pierre Cardin’s Palace of lights to the three towers reaching 245 meters high, overlooking the scene of the Serenissima

 

 

From the top of the Tower of the Church San Giorgio the panorama presents magnificent views of Venice from San Marco to the Giardini Biennale in the foreground. At the back-plane you can see the lagoon with the islands of the San Michele cemetery and Murano as well as at the bottom side of the lagoon with the airport.
