I live in St-Barthélémy. St-Barthélémy is a little city near Angers, in the north-west of France and there are 9075 people living there. They are named "bartholoméens" for men and "bartholoméenes" for women. There is many big companies in the industrial park of St-Barthélémy, like Cointreau, Cotra, Leroy Merlin, Netto, thyssenkrup. The park and the castle of Pignerolles are very big monuments which organize every year events and shows, like "le cross du courrier de l'ouest". There are 5 schools. There is a little theater whose name is "le THV" and a big riding school. There are also many sports clubs, St-Barthélémy supports sportmen in every sport such as football, basketball, rugby, tennis, badminton, horse riding, rock climbing, hand ball, athletism, dancing, boxing, judo, and many other sports ! However the city supports intellectuals too with a very big library.
