  • The length was not going in Figeac, you don't want to miss from my old went beyond expectations. The Church and monastery, and the village became better as a whole. History aside, this picture was taking some good neighborhood was hard to picture. Conques treasure as well as the ashes of the war as a Virgin Foy HM on which in the middle ages there was such a thing became lunch while Wang Wang to eat slowly in Japan ~ group of tourists came in 20 minutes gone. Attach a couple of hard shots.

  • You'll love the cobbled streets of this medieval village which has kept a charm! (Watch the high heels!) It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful villages of France, that's for sure! Don't miss to visit the Abbey and admire the eardrum (amazing!) as well as the stained glass windows made by Pierre Soulages! (see the explanation and the development at the Museum "Pierre Soulages' of Rodez) / secret: visit Conques in the dark, it is even more beautiful and the stained glass windows occasionally bluish colors that make them wonderful... It kinda of magic that runs through the village when the Sun disappears to let conch shine in the lights of the village, a different atmosphere that will take you elsewhere... We had the chance to listen to a concert in the Abbey Church and going out at night! An unforgettable!
