PARIS France


Paris is the ‘City of Light’, the ‘City of Love’ and the ‘Capital of Fashion’. The bank of the Seine, the Montmartre and the Quartier Latin speak of artists: about Dumas, Zola, and Victor Hugo, who depicted the city in unforgettable literary pieces and about painters who did the same on canvas. On moonlit nights and foggy autumn mornings, the shadows of Modigliani, Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec appear. Every corner is famous from a French movie, and we wait for Jean Gabin and Belmondo to appear on the next street. The streets and squares remind us of the Sun King, the ‘Man in the Iron Mask’ and Napoleon. In the cafes, old chansons are sung on the voice of Edith Piaf and Yves Montand. The wheel of the Moulin Rouge is unstoppable, while in the halls of the Louvre, Leonardo’s Mona Lisa is smiling enigmatically, on the Pont Neuf lovers are meeting, below the Grand Arche the traffic never slows down, and the iron bars of the Eiffel Tower are looming above Notre Dame and the Sacre Coeur.

France 2008 – The Roman Empire on display


This is another clip shot in the historical theme park at Puy du Fou, showcasing its main act: les Gladiateurs. The spectacle lasts for nearly 45 minutes, and draws a lot of attention from the visitors of the park because it’s only held twice a day. The show consists of torture of christians and the victory of Christendom (which is the main storyline), a parade of people of animals displaying the economical prowess of the vast Imperium (shown here), chariot racing (www.youtube.com and gladiator fights against animals and one another. The parade is made up of all kinds of people, animals, and wares from all corners of the then-known world. First up is Roman centurion (commander of a hundred soldiers), followed consecutively by… – his lieutenant; – three aquilifers or standard bearers carrying the Roman eagle, a tremendously prestigious position within the Roman legions; – Roman legionaries in the common testudo formation, a very popular and effective tactic used by Roman soldiers throughout the Antiquity; – two men carrying the she-wolf that suckled Romulus and Remus, thus symbolysing the very beginning of the city of Rome itself; – a couple of cornicens or hornblowers, which are an excellent example of the splendid Roman military organization; – a family of slaves, the economic basis of both Republic and Empire; – the geese of the Capitoline Hill who, according to legend, saved this lastly standing part of Rome from the raiding Gauls in 390 BC; – a cart carrying

France 2008 – Chariot racing


Another part of the Les Gladiateurs spectacle in the historical theme park at Puy du Fou is the chariot race. The White team has to win, since he’s the legionary who revealed his Christian roots to Emperor Diocletian and now has to win all games in order to be exempted from capital punishment – or so the story goes. Hence, he receives an amiable applause from the crowd, whereas the other color-coded teams are arguably no favourites for the title. Watch and behold the Christian undertaking his ride to life and freedom. About Puy du Fou “Puy du Fou is a historical theme park in Les Epesses in the heart of the Vendée region of Western France. The park brings in some 1.2 million visitors every year, making it the second most popular attraction in France after Euro Disney[1]. (…) Gladiators is set in a replica of an amphitheater that is 115 meters long and 75 meters wide and recreated the atmosphere of Gaul during Roman times. It features a traditional parade of people and animals, gladiatorial combat, chariot racing and executions. It is set during the time of Diocletian, when there was great unrest.” ~ en.wikipedia.org About chariot racing “Chariot racing (Greek: ????????????/armatodromia) was one of the most popular ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine sports. Chariot racing was often dangerous to both drivers and horses—they frequently suffered serious injury and even death—but generated strong spectator enthusiasm. In the ancient Olympic Games, as well as the other

France 2008 – Le bataille du donjon


Of what use would a journey to the major castles of the Loire river valley be without visiting the historical theme park Le Grand Parc at Puy du Fou? Exactly: none. Having visited Chartres, Orléans, Chinon and Angers – all cities of huge medieval importance – we thus end up in this park witnessing “le bataille du donjon” (Battle of the Keep), symbolysing the Hundred Years’ War between the English and French nations. About Puy du Fou “Puy du Fou is a historical theme park in Les Epesses in the heart of the Vendée region of Western France. The park brings in some 1.2 million visitors every year, making it the second most popular attraction in France after Euro Disney[1]. (…) The Battle of the Keep is based around a French Donjon in the year 1429 during the Grand Chivalry Festival when an attack by English Knights disrupts the tournament. This show features Jousting, trick-riding, horseback duels and a movable, flame-throwing castle!” ~ en.wikipedia.org About the Hundred Years’ War “The Hundred Years’ War (French: Guerre de Cent Ans) was a prolonged conflict lasting from 1337 to 1453 between two royal houses for the French throne, vacant with the extinction of the senior Capetian line of French kings. The two primary contenders were the House of Valois, and the House of Plantagenet, also known as the House of Anjou. The House of Valois claimed the title of King of France, while the Plantagenets from England claimed to be Kings of France and England. The Plantagenet Kings
