This site will help you to discover the regions of the world, their history, and their nature through women and men who created it. You'll discover people who fought for projects, ideas: they built cities, universities, and institutions. They are Presidents, directors, artists, inventors ... Their paths may sometimes be subject to controversy, but they managed to build the unimaginable.
We have started our Sagaplanet.com trip with New England in the US. One of the pioneer that came and discovered this region was Aymar de Chaste, a Knight Hospitallers, who was coming from France with the intention of discovering the New World.
Before coming in America, the Knights Hospitallers had a great influence in Mediterranean area; they built fortresses like in Marseille or in Malta, under the directions of Jean Parisot de La Valette.They also fought against some armies like the ones of Saladin.
This month, I propose you to do the reverse trip and to take the direction of South of France, in a region called Provence Côte d'Azur. One of the founders of the Knights Hospitaliers, Gérard de Martigues, was coming from there.
It is a sunny and warm region that attracted quite a number of artists like Picasso, Matisse or Bréa.
It is an independant country , that generated people like Mirabeau or Sieyès who were key political people.It is a country that has always been enriched by people coming from other countries or other regions.
From Cote d'Azur to Alpes , like in Mercantour , you will discover a region with transparent waters, mountain lakes, forests and lavande fields...
From this country protected by blue skies, we wish you a happy New Year 2009.
So have a good trip and see you soon on Sagaplanet.com!
