- Troyes Medieval City - To approximately 160 km in the south-east of Paris, Troyes is located on the Seine which also passes to Paris. This old medieval city preserves a remarkable inheritance. Thus it is centre town. Indeed, "the city in the shape of champagne stopper" (seen sky, the trees and channels draw the aforementioned "stopper" around the 53 hectares of the historical heart) is regarded as "the most beautiful medieval town whole of France". The Trojan houses the Middle Ages are "almost very of Renaissance style", which makes them remarkable from the architectural point of view. After a general fire of 1524, the inhabitants rebuilt their residences with the identical one.
The town of Troyes owes its name to the Gallic people of Tricasses. It 's in the surroundings of Troyes that would have proceeded into 451 the battle of the Fields catalaunic at the end which Attila was overcome and turned back. With the Early Middle Ages, the city was the chief town of a county which was based in the Champagne county. It was an important crossroads for the itinerant tradesmen, who gathered in what was called the Champagne fairs. These fairs always exist but more have the form of an exposure and lost in importance.
