View of part of Luxembourg Ville from Pont Grand-Ducal Adolphe The Grund. Part of the reason the city of Luxembourg was known as the "Gibraltar of the North." In the National Museum of Art and History there is an amazing metal casting of the city fortifications prior to their dismantlement as part of the same treaty that gave Luxembourg a measure of independence. Sadly, no pictures allowed in the museum. The église Saint-Michel as afternoon rains move in. My ancestors came from Luxembourg and there is some evidence that one ancestor painted the ceiling of a church in Luxembourg. Sadly we don't know just where yet. The streets of the Marche aux Poissons. This part of Luxembourg is a World Heritage Site. The twisting turning roads always seem to lead to a new discovery at the end.
