Nelligen Things to Do
The old Postoffice is a B&B now
In 1858 the very first postoffice of Nelligan was built in the shop of a local merchant, before this pretty building in my became the Postoffice between 1900 and 1982.
Then it was transferred into a modern Guesthouse - see my extra pictures as well, it looks like a really great place to stay for some days ! there is a small terrace in front of some rooms and a great garden and fence around the house.
You will find more pics about this B&B in my travelogue !Related to:
The old Courthouse is the anglican...
The old courthouse of Nelligan was built in 1893 and in 1940 it was transferred into the anglican Church of the village.
From this church you also have a great view down on the river and a tiny belfry is standing in front of the church, where you will also find some benches under a covered terrace.Related to:

Nelligen Warnings and Dangers
Be carefull where you step !
I had a severe problem with some inscects that were all of sudden attacking my left foot: 10 or more of them were biting my foot through the socks. I lifted the end of my trousers and saw lots of black insects with some kind of a woolen body, almost no feet, no wings and so I started to rub my trousers against my socks and obviously killed all of them that way or maybe they found a way to escape.
These stiches were hurting for 3-4 days and I was really glad they were obviously not poisened.
They must have jumped on my socks, while I was taking some pics on the cemetery, local people told me they might have been "earth-wasps" or something similar.
When you considder that some of the most poisonous spiders on earth are living in that area it could have taken a worse end as well...Related to:

Nelligen Off The Beaten Path
The cemetery of Nelligan is a bit outside of the village, it is best to drive there by car !
Some of the graves are in the woods, some are spread over the hill. I had a little walk around that cemetery because I was looking for european names and inscriptions.
Be carefull, where you step, I almost had a severe problem with some insects - read more about it in my "Danger & Warning-tips" !Related to:
