France & Spain - summer 2023

At the end of the summer of 2023 we travellled to the south of France and north of Spain with our Jolly Egg


We first travelled to Limoges and visites a camping near Doumazac, were we found this small chateau.

The next stop was Lourdes where we visited the church and tapped some of the holy water.

We then crossed the border of Spain and visited Ordesa valley.

We visited a number of small villages, including Broto, Garos and Bagegue.

We were very impressed with the interior of the small 11/12 century church of Santa Maria d'Arties with very nivce 15th century paintings near the altarpiece.

On our way home we vistited the medieval walled city of Carcassonne.

We visited small market with antiques and old hand tools at Lautrec.

Although we were there before, we again visited the nice city Albi with it's marvelous cathedral and book with oldest worldmap (Mappa Mundi). 

The beautiful small village Cordes sur Ciel and Castelneu-de-Montmiral.

As we were near we also visited Sarlat-la-Canéda again.  Is was much more crowded than the other villages, making it more difficult to make nice photos.

We stayed close to the Chateaux de Baynac.

We visited the meseum  Lascaux IV with a replicas of real cave of Lascaux.

The last villages we visited on our trip was Domme in the Dordogne.
