For this month's angel, Rosemary writes:
On a quiet street in Uzès, angels hold an unusual coat-of-arms – two doves facing each other peck at a sheaf of wheat under a large star. This emblem of Michel Poncet de la Rivière, a duke and bishop of Uzès from 1676 – 1728, graces the pediment of his former home in this beautiful small city. Uzès was the first duchy of France, and is located about 25 kilometers from Nîmes.
Beloved for its medieval fountains, picturesque alleys, beautiful homes and hidden gardens, in 1965 Uzès was declared a "secteur sauvegardé" – a safeguarded sector – by Andre Malraux, former minister of culture, and later given the title "city of art and history" in 2008. I had the pleasure of visiting Uzès recently, and found it to be one of the most beautiful places in France.
