Grenoble, a city of contrasts.

The building on this picture (even if I find it quite ugly!) is a symbol of Grenoble.
It is located in a district called L'Ile Verte and it is part of a set of 3 identical towers. They were built between 1963 and 1967 and, at that time, they were the highest inhabited towers in Europe (98 meters high).

The mountain in the background is called Belledonne.
And as Stendhal wrote it, in Grenoble you've got a mountain at the end of every street.

Welcome, Mademoiselle, (to Dailyphoto blogging), from sunny South Australia.
It is wonderful to see one of my favourite cities in France represented within the DP group. I hope to be visiting Grenoble this year and obviously, I now can see so much more of your city.
Je vous souhaite la bonne chance avec votre nouveau Blog.

Sometimes, if you climb on the bastille on a foggy day, they are the only visible buildings sticking out of the clouds; it's quite a view. Nice photo, I like the effect.
