Wednesday Postcard: Grenoble, France

Bonjour! This week’s carte postale features the Fontaine du Centenaire, located in Grenoble, in southeastern France.

  • The fountain is also known as Fontaine des trois ordres
  • It was completed by Henri Ding in 1897, nine years after the 100th anniversary of the pre-revolutionary events of 1788
  • Fun fact: The liqueur of Chartreuse is distilled by the monks of La Grande Chartreuse, located near Grenoble.
  • For more information:
