An intact medieval city. There is an outer wall to keep out attackers along with ramparts to patrol the area, an inner village for the traders, then the inner castle and church. The inner village shops are now restaurants and shops to buy souvenirs from. We liked seeing how life was in the time of kings and queens and serfs, but didn’t like to be around so many tourists like ourselves. The walk along the ramparts was very fun except for the strong winds that practically blew us off them. This was a hot part of France with temps hitting 30c. This area is known for it’s winds “the Mistral’s” and the area used to be filled old farm windmills and now has hundreds of the wind turbines.
Next we headed to the Mediterranean Sea. We stayed near the coastal town Sete
