Picture a land of great beauty, where ancient stone buildings meet your eyes as you walk along country roads and sleepy villages overlook endless fields of purple lavender. The scene you're imagining is Provence, a region of southeastern France where history, culture, and nature meet to create something very special.

想像有一片很美的大地,你在那裡沿著鄉間道路行走時會看見古老的石造建築,還有寧靜的村莊眺望著一望無際的紫色薰衣草田。你所想像的場景正是普羅旺斯,這是法國東南部的一個地區,歷史、文化和自然在這裡交融出非常特別的事物。

 

Provence consists of several small towns, many of which date back to Roman times. In Arles, visit the first-century Roman amphitheater, where staged races and battles once entertained audiences. Discover the Church of St. Trophime, with its finely carved marble exterior. Le Cafe la Nuit is a good place to stop for an afternoon coffee. Its exterior remains basically unchanged from when Vincent van Gogh painted it over a century ago.

普羅旺斯由好幾個小鎮組成,其中有許多可追溯至羅馬時代。在亞爾,要去參觀西元一世紀的羅馬露天競技場,這裡上演的競賽和戰鬥表演曾經娛樂過觀眾。去探索聖托菲姆教堂,它有著精雕細琢的大理石外觀。夜晚露天咖啡座是停下來享用下午茶的好去處。它的外觀與一個多世紀前梵谷為其作畫時基本上沒有改變。

 

Avignon is another town that's well worth a visit. It was once the seat of the Vatican, recalling a glorious moment in history that one can explore today at the Papal Palace. This is the largest Gothic palace ever built, with a dozen towers and grand religious paintings on its walls and ceilings. At this palace—along with other locations in town—the Avignon Festival is held for three weeks every July. Offering hundreds of performances, it's a true treat for fans of theater and the performing arts.

亞維儂是另一個值得一遊的城鎮。它曾經是天主教廷的所在地,今天你可以探訪教皇宮回想起歷史上那一段輝煌的時刻。這是有史以來所建造最大的哥德式皇宮,有十幾座塔樓,而牆上及天花板上都有宏偉的宗教畫。每年七月,在這座皇宮以及鎮上其他地方都會舉行為期三週的亞維儂藝術節。藝術節提供數百場演出,對戲劇和表演藝術愛好者來說是一件極愜意的事。
