5 Half-timbered Building in Strasbourg, France

Many of the buildings in Strasbourg, France, are half-timbered, a construction technique that dates back to the Neolithic Period. The lattice style of “X” shaped timbers is called a saltire or St. Andrews Cross. This example on Quai des Bateliers is probably very old but its modern purpose is the Ville et Campagne store, which translates to “city and countryside.”
