    Rochefort Tourist Train

    As we were driving around, we noticed they had a little Tourist Train.
    We usually do these tour's so my husband can see the sight's, but here, the washing was more important.

    This Town is hilly, so it may be a good idea to do the 1 hour tour, which is reasonably priced!
    The circuit takes you to the circle of the King, Cave of Lorettepanorama, Chateau Comtal, Chapel of Lorette and Malagne and has a bilingual audio commentary.

    During the school holidays (Carnival, Easter, all Saints) and June 1 to August 31: all days except in the case of reservations
    Easter to October 31
    Departures to : 11am, 1pm, 2.30pm, 4: 00 pm
    AND in July & August if a minimum of 6 ticket's are sold, at 5pm

    FARE.....Adult: €5-Senior: €4-child (3 - > 12 years): €3

    Actually, this street changes names, with part of it being named Place roi Albert Ler.

    It was here, where we found the Tourist Information centre.
    Next, we walked further along the street to see the big Catholic Church, I just wish I could remember the name, but I can't, but you will not miss it!

    It was also along here, where we had our evening meal. There were many Restaurant's which were extra busy, perhap's this was why the meal wasn't the best!

    RUIN'S OF THE CASTLE OF THE COUNT'S

    Ruin's of Castle Rochefort

    What we first saw on our arrival, were the 11th century Castle Ruin's that dominate the town of Rochefort.

    "They" call it an esplanade where you can walk around the ruins of the castle, admiring them and the view's from the top! Famous families lived here once, that was until it was under German attack, not so any more, the only attack is by visiting Tourist's!
    Follow the marked route through the remains of the castle to discover traces of digs, an archaeological museum.

    2012.....The Castle is closed at the moment, so check with tourist office first.

    Church in Rochefort

    The photo shows the church of Rochefort. The inside also looks interesting, it's worth to go in. Although it's not a big church.
    Unfortunately I have no information on the church and even don't remember the name...
