Before Taizé became known as the community, it was and still is the name of the small village just below . The people in this village very much cherish their privacy and ask to be left alone. They don't like large crowds walking through their village, but when you are on your own or with a small,quiet group they don't mind, they also don't like late-night parties next to their homes.
The old Roman church in the village is open for visitors. The architecture is interesting, dry stone walls and the round,massive towers often seen in Burgundy.
We admired the flowers along the old buildings and the gardens, simply beautiful in summer.
Taizé is something like a youth camp that involves discussions about certain subjects, team work & had a kind of a religious touch. You don't have to believe in anything, as the matter of fact! It's a place where there are no prejudices, where people are totally open & up to anything.
Fondest memory: I'm telling you - that place changed my life! :) I'm constantly craving it...!
