  • It's a trip back in time, back to the distant past. Second count, Provins was, in the 12th and 13th centuries, an important trading centre in Europe. The city has an extramural cemetery with graves of 200/300 years, a set of medieval churches in Romanesque, Germanic-style houses (with apparent wooden structure), as they find in Colmar or Strasbourg, in addition to an imposing medieval tower (Tour Cesar). But the highlight in this topic are the walls (rempards). So with in Toledo and in Carcassonne, Provins has impressive and well preserved walls/fortifications of the middle ages. The tour can start from the Porte Saint-Jean. Following on the right (extramural) can circumvent a substantial part of the walls, visit cemitèrio and enter again in the city by Porte de Jouy. It's nothing hard to get wondering what it would be like a Knight (or Dame) in times of Joanna of arc ... but that part of the story of Provins belongs to another monument of the city, which will be the subject of another evaluation (Collegiale). For Provins, the most practical and interesting option is to follow the train, leaving Paris from Gare de l'Est, in a pleasant trip of about 90 min.
