This past weekend we went to see a friend in Geneva and to ski a bit in the mountains,i have to say i had never done it in my life and i think it will rest an activity that i will never do more than two times a year;i hate cold weather and to top it off i couldn’t even walk with those darn ski boots… but not all was lost we got to visit the amazing town of Annecy or the french Venice as some may call it. I suggest you read the wikipedia article about this amazing village and its history.
Palais de l’Isle is a castle in the centre of the Thiou canal, built in 1132. It was the primary residence of the Lord of Annecy as early as the 12th century, and later became the Count of Geneva’s administrative headquarters, then alternately a courthouse, a mint, and finally a jail from the Middle Ages until 1865 and then again during World War II. The Palais de l’Ile was classified as a Historical Monument in 1900, and today houses a local history museum.
