It is a symbol of patriotism andpride.To reach at the top of Arch de Triomphe, you have to be climb up to 280 stairsFrom the top, the Paris city looks fabulous, and you can see about all the top landmarks in the city.There is a tomb of an unknown soldier of World War I just underneath the Arc.

The Louvre museum in Paris is thelargest museum in the worldand houses more than 35,000 works of art such as paintings, sculpture, drawing and archaeologicalobjects! The palace which was built as a fortress in the 12th century became a museum in 1793. A glass pyramid was later built in the courtyard over the main underground entrance. The famous painting ofMona Lisa(also called 'La Joconde' in French) by Leonardo da Vinci is exhibited in the Louvre.

The château or castle on the outskirts of Paris was built as a hunting lodge for Louis XIII in 1624 but later transformed into a huge palace. Afterthe French Revolution when the royal family was forced to move out of the castle, the palace fell into disrepair. The palace has been largely restored and attracts thousands of visitors every year.

This French landmark is a tiny island located in a small bay off the north western coast of France. The island which is only cut off during high tide, is accessible by foot via a bridge since 2014. On top of the rocky island stands an impressive abbey which was built and expanded over several centuries. Today only about 40 people live in the small village around the parish church and the abbey.

The lavender fields in southern France are popular with many visitors when the bright purple fragrant lavender blossoms from late June to early August. The smell is truly amazing! Lavender flowers are harvested and turned into a variety of beautiful products.

The famous bridge in Avignon is built on the river Rhone, which is second longest but deepest river in France. Avignon was in the medieval ages home to the pope. The bridge across the river only has some arches still intact, as the parts of the bridge were swept away during a big flood in the 17th century. Still the bridge remains a main landmark. There is a popular children rhyme 'Sur le pont d'Avignon'?

Sacré Cœur (meaning 'holy heart') is thefamous cathedral in Montmartre,the artists' quarters of Paris. The enormous church stands on a hill near the centre of the city.

Culture & Tradition

Click herefor the next page

Each year, on the 12th Day of Christmas – 6th January, the whole of France goes gaga for a cake called Galette des Rois. It’s a tradition which celebrates the Epiphany and it refers to the three kings who followed the star to Bethlehem. The golden flaky pastry cake is filled with almond paste and topped with a gold crown. Inside a lucky charm known as the fève is hidden. Whoever finds it is crowned king for a day. Often, the youngest person at the meal sits under the table and calls out the names of those seated and slices of cake are served accordingly. That way whoever gets the ‘fève’ is completely randomly chosen!​

Let's get cooking!

Click herefor the method

75g butter (softened) (1/3 cup, 2.5 oz)​2 eggs (medium)​75g caster sugar (1/3 cup, 2.5 oz)​1 tablespoon plain flour​ 75g ground almonds (1/3 cup, 2.5 oz)​2 packets of ready rolled puff pastry1 tablespoon rum (optional)​Almond extract/essence (optional)​ Pinch of Salt​1 fève – or lucky charm, or use a small piece of chocolate

ingredients

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4/350°F and line a baking tray with grease proof paper.Keep the puff pastry in the fridge right up until you need to use it.1. Mix the butter, egg, sugar and flour together in a bowl and then add the ground almonds, salt, almond extract (a few drops) and the rum if you’re using it and mix them all well together.2. Roll out one sheet of puff pastry and cut into a large circle. Do the same with the other and reserve for later.3. Spread the almond paste onto one of the puff pastry circle on the tray leaving about 2 cm (inch) clear around the edge to allow you to join the ”lid”. Put the fève (or chocolate piece) into the almond paste and then brush the beaten third egg round the edge you left clear and place the other sheet of puff pastry over the top. Pinch the edges together gently so that they stick but be careful not to squidge the filling out! Brush more beaten egg over the top of the cake, make a small hole to let the steam out and then lightly score the pastry with a knife creating a criss cross pattern – or a fancy leaf pattern or anything you like, it really enhances the appearance and you can let your creativity run wild!4. Place in the oven for 10 minutes and then reduce the temperature to 160°C/Gas Mark 3/325°F for 25 minutes or until the puff pastry is well risen and golden. Place a paper crown on top and eat when cold.

AlternativelyIf for any reason you can't follow this recipe you could bake cupcakes and hyde a piece of chocolate in one of them. The person who gets the hidden chocolate piece is crowned King/Queen for the day
