  Strasbourg - Marche O Cochons de Lait
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Me liked a very beautiful square with amusing name "Marche O Cochons de Lait" (Square of the Market of Dairy Pigs). The interesting house of typical Alsase architecture is located here. At its roof there is a flagstaff in the form of a boot . The following legend is connected with it. In the 1415 Strasbourg ladies invited emperor Sigizmund to a dancing. Making the way through snowdrifts Sigizmund appeared almost in a tatter, and kind ladies urgently bought to him new footwear at bootmaker who lived in this house!
