Luxembourg World Heritage Site

We found ourselves looking out to the city view and reading about the World Heritage Site commemoration.  The fortifications of Luxembourg are regarded as one is the most impressive in Europe. They became a World Heritage Site in 1994.

In the city museum, we had the opportunity to understand the evolution of the fortifications and development in the city. Luxembourg with its topography was destined to be one of the greatest walled cities in Europe. Popular among tourist, the beautiful views will take your breath away.

Later in the day we visited the Notre-Dame cathedral where the royal crypt hidden underneath the church, flanked by two lions in bronze with the Luxembourg coat of arms. In there, it rests the Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg as well as other members of the Ducal family.

Tomorrow we will go to the national museum of history and art  of Luxembourg and we will say goodbye to our stay here.
