View of Gien

View of Gien
France, Gien at the Loire river, August 2009

View of the town with the Château de Gien, a historic and listed castle.
Much of Gien was destroyed during the Second World War. The town was bombed with the aim to destroy the town's bridge to prevent the French Army from retreating. The bombardment created a huge fire which completely destroyed over four hundred buildings, including the town's two main churches. The town was rebuilt after the war: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gien

Thanks all for the nice comments and the favourites, very much appreciated!
