Even graffiti is chic in Troyes

Troyes, the ancient capital of the Champagne-Ardennes region in France. This was the only day we strayed outside of Bourgogne. Interestingly, the very first appearance of the (totally discredited) "Shroud of Turin" was in 1355 in Lirey, a town in the diocese of Troyes. The shroud eventually made its way to Turin (in Italy) for the price of two castles.
