Constructing Guedelon Castle

  法国:26年打造中世纪城堡(图)

  A horse-drawn cart is used to carry stones to the foot of a tower at the construction site of Guedelon castle, in a forest of Burgundy, 200 kms (125 miles) south of Paris. Stone by stone, craftsmen build a medieval-style castle with only horses to cart the rock, without power tools. It's a living history lesson and a successful tourism project: Last year, 245,000 vuisitors admired the work of Guedelon's craftsmen whose work began in 1997. If all goes well, the castle will be finished in 2023.

  在巴黎南部200公里以外的勃艮第森林地区,一座名为Guedelon的城堡正在建设之中。图中的马车是工地运送石料的交通工具。工匠们将用石头一块块地搭建出一座中世纪风格的城堡,且只用马车来搬运石头,不使用其它任何现代化工具。修建Guedelon城堡的过程就是一堂活生生的历史课和成功的旅游开发项目。去年,共有24.5万游客为Guedelon城堡慕名而来。该城堡从1997年开始建造。如果一切进行顺利,它最终将于2023年完工。
