Pau, France - 17th August 2007

By: Mistigree

Then we went to visit the castle of French King Henri IV.
Look, he had a quite nice mini skirt, don't you think ?!

This man is Gaston Phébus. He was a count and is represented with a dog here because (-according to Mistigree, but she's not sure, she's not historian !!-) he was hunting a lot (he even wrote a famous book about hunting) and on old tapestries with hunting scenes on them, he's very often represented riding a horse and accompanied by dogs.

This is the castle. It is quite different from the one I saw in Carcassonne !!! This one is from the Renaissance style.

There is a little garden too, with medicinal plants.

Once back home, Mistigree showed me a book about history and I saw what "château de Versailles" near Paris looked like !! It seems so big and has got beautiful gardens (that's what Mistigree told me because she saw it many years ago)
