Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
Since our search for wineries didn’t seem to be as successful as we had expected, Lars and I changed our plans. The Tourist Information Office at Metz had recommended us a couple of places and we decided to go there instead. One of them was Gorze:
Gorze”s past goes back to the first century,when it was connected with Metz via an aqueduct. It is known for its abbey, which according to Wikipedia was prominent as the source of a monastic reform movement in the 930s. There is also an Abbot’s Palace which was built at the end of the 17th century.
Something that Lars and I had already noticed and appreciated in Metz and its surroundings is the Mediterranean atmosphere. We found this a bit surprising since these places are not that far from Belgium. And we had the same feeling when we were in Gorze.
