“Colmar architecture”. December 2016. Colmar. France. Alsace boasts a remarkable architectural legacy. Timber-framed houses, generally characterized by flat clay tiles and half-timbered building fronts, are found in both the cities and the countryside. Elegant bourgeois homes, their façades divided by ornamental banding, have many bay windows. Alsace, a region long accustomed to working with stone and wrought iron, also features fine examples of Romanesque, and Vaubanesque architecture.
