Лабиринты во Франции

Drawing from the Medieval city plan for Toulouse, Isabelle de Beaufort and Bernard Ramus created a maze in Cordes-sur-Ciel, France where the abandoned house at the center of the maze represents the lair of the legendary dragon that lurks beneath the streets of Toulouse.

Some of the other things that inspired this piece: Alice in Wonderland, ancient Egypt, medieval turf mazes, and prehistoric Scandinavian labyrinths.

А вот и история

The world's largest maze (in 1997) was at REIGNAC SUR INDRE, Indre-et-Loire. A local architect named Bernard Ramus read about the maize mazes in the US (see under Shippensburg in Section 10: USA). His partner, Isabelle de Beaufort, built a small version in 1996 and was amazed when 80,000 visitors came, with 3000 in one day. So she developed the idea to having the field deliberately planted as a maze – the American versions were cut through ordinary plantings. The 1997 version covered 37 acres and had six different mazes, of different styles. [Paul Webster; Lost days in world's largest maze; The Guardian (18 Jul 1997) 16.]
