Holiday tasks 1 and 2

Task 1

Couvent Des Jacobins - Toulouse

The Church of the Jacobins was built in the thirteenth century.

It consists of a church called "church of the Jacobins" a cloister, a chapel house,a refectory and a chapel the chapel Saint-Antanin.

Task 2

Tower Bridge 

I like the Tower Bridge because it looks like a castle, but actually it is a bridge. It is a well known symbol of London.

There are two towers and a little bridge at the top (which has a glass floor).

It is 130 years old.

The bridge is 800 feet (240 metres) in length with two towers each 213 feet (65 metres) high, built on piers. The central span of 200 feet (61 metres) between the towers is split into two equal bascules or leaves, which can be raised to an angle of 86 degrees to allow river traffic to pass. The bascules, weighing over 1,000 tons each, are counterbalanced to minimise the force required and allow raising in five minutes

  I went to Tower Bridge in December 2015 and saw it open to let a ship go through.
