    France, Alsace, Strasbourg, “La Petite France”, is to be found on the „Grande Ill“, the main island, where the river Ill splits up into a number of canals & cascades through a small area of medieval “Fachwerkhäuser”, timber-framed houses & baroque sandstone buildings. In the Middle Age, the Petite-France was the tanning-houses, slaughterhouses & fishermen’s area. Boats crossing La Petit France have to go into & leave through floodgates due to a roughly 4 mtr higher water level in this area.
    The name “La Petite-France”, Little France, was not given for patriotic or architectural reasons. It comes from the "Hospice des Vérolés”, the hospice of the syphilitic, which was built in the late 15th century on this island, to cure persons with syphilis, then called the "French disease".
    Strasbourg is situated on the Ill River, where it flows into the Rhine on the border with Germany, across from the city of Kehl on the German side.
