Hello friends and colleagues, today I present another image of a nice building with restaurant use of the charming town of Colmar, which we visited on the trip last summer vacation, leaving us a lovely memory, this is the fifth picture and I will explain later some more of this beautiful and interesting city, I hope you enjoy. Then a few letters on the city.
Colmar (France: Colmar; Alsatian: Colmer; German: Colmar, between 1871-1918 and 1940-1945: Kolmar) is a town and commune in the department of Haut-Rhin Alsace, France.
It is the prefecture (capital) of the district of the same name.
The old city center, well preserved houses several buildings, sometimes large, German Gothic and early Renaissance and a number of old churches, among which is the collegiate church of San Martín (XIII century) as the largest and most notable.
Local artist Martin Schongauer XV century painted what is considered his masterpiece, The Madonna of the Roses, in the Eglise des Dominicains (Dominican church). The famous Isemheim Altarpiece by Matthias Grünewald highlight is the treasure housed in the Museum Unterlinden city. The museum, opened in 1853, is housed in the former convent of the Dominican order of "Unterlinden" (meaning "under the linden trees").
In 1834, was born in Colmar Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, creator of the famous Statue of Liberty, located in New York City.
Once a year, in August, the Fair hosts Colmar wines.
However, the greatest art is that Colmar retains traditional ambience with its wooden frame houses carefully preserved, filled with flowering geraniums on hot days.
Colmar has an interesting center, studded with old buildings, a famous museum, Unterlinden, and carefully Little Venice.
Furthermore, in the vicinity of the city there are some other points of interest, such as the magnificent town of Riquewihr, and great food and wine care also linger conception of art.
Unterlinden Museum is housed in a former Dominican convent founded in the thirteenth century, with a Gothic cloister considered the best in the region.
About 300,000 visitors come each year to the center, which exposes excellent art exhibitions of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, as well as archaeological and ethnographic, on two floors and a basement.
But the core of this whole attraction is the famous Issenheim altarpiece, painted in the early sixteenth century by Grünewald to decorate a convent chapel Issenheim (20 miles south of Colmar)
The ten paintings of Grünewald are masterful. The painter left an impressive Crucifixion, which amazed the wincing, luminous shades and many details, among which is the painful aspect of Christ's flesh.
This crucifixion of Mathias Grünewald painter has placed as one of the most prominent European and world religious art of all time.
Little Venice, a beautiful set of traditional houses, full of flowers, beautiful half-timbered, line up along the street and Fish Pier, next to the canal.
These houses were owned by fishermen. Also lived in the neighborhood gardeners traditionally used by the channel to drive the fruits to the city market. Today the boats carry tourists rather quiet.
Very near this neighborhood is that of the tanners, with houses of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, lovingly restored.
Around the city center of Colmar houses abound timbered Alsatian, artistic balconies, turrets, balconies and other decorative elements.
In addition to the proliferation of this type of construction, stands in Colmar exquisite care of this important heritage, full of flowers during the most benign.
This gorgeous set spans much of the city, but is particularly notable in the walk from the Cathedral Square to the Old Customs and Little Venice.

The traditional architecture of this house with the warm colours of its walls and adorned with many flowers on almost each level, makes this a cozy and charming corner in town.
Best regards, Paul

Otra soberbia imagen de esta ciudad tan interesante, la casa es una maravilla y resalta fantasticamente, con su color salmon y ese intrincado entramado de madera.

A fantastic warm cold colour contrast between the red & blue with punchy light contrasts and superb sharpness & graphism. Perpective in this wide angled view has been well managed with the verticals placed centrally rather than far left or far right. Tfs!

Have a nice evening,

tra i luoghi che ho visitato, l'Alsazia, è senza dubbio una delle regioni a cui sono più legato.
Mi è piaciuta molto, per vari motivi, dalla bellezza dei luoghi, alla gentilezza delle persone che ho incontrato, dal cibo buono ai vigneti splendidi.
Questa foto racchiude un pò di tutto, compresa la cura per le case e le città.
Janusz1974 (2824) 2013-01-12 12:14
what a beautiful architecture, splendid shot of this place with splendid composition, very nice colours and lights.

hi angel,such a nice pic from france,the color is amazing,and that old building is something else,nice crop too. have a super sunday! dr
delpeoples (54463) 2013-01-13 13:03
Hola dear Angel
I was just thinking just how un-Spanish this building looks. Could there be a greater contrast between the Germanic architecture and that of the Spaniards and Italians? That diversity is what I like so much in your Gallery. Anyway, a beautiful shot of this most characteristic and pretty restaurant. The colours and light management are delightful. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful evening.
