Languedoc-Roussillon Off The Beaten Path

  • Church Saint Martin,Limoux

    nice big Church I passed on the other side of the river Aude and got this picture. The Church is from the 12C but gone thru many rénovations ,the gothic belltower is from 16C and done on the old romanesque square tower of the 11C , the wooden baldaquin totally scuplture from the 18C , and the modern stained glass gives a contrasting look. The organ...

  • Collioure

    Collioure (near the Spanish border) is a picture-perfect village with perfect views on the Mediterannean Sea. It features a small harbour, a local beach, romantic villas, a fortress, and has inspired many artists that dedicated paintings to Collioure. Understandably so. The city belongs to the Roussillon province, which was once long disputed...

  • Old towers

    I think these are old customs towers, not designed for defense against a military threat, but rather designed as a secure place where customs duties could be collected, stored and guarded until transport. We didn't search out a road to go down here. More than likely if you did, they would be locked up.

    This small obelisk is dedicted to the local men who fell or served during the World Wars. Although this section of France generally escaped heavy fighting and intense occupation during hte war, it was not wholly immune from either war's effects.

  • Roadside Monument

    i forgot the name of the person this is dedicated to, but he was a chemist who also pursued some military career. He died in an accidental explosion.Part of the reason I've put this tip here, is to demonstrate the type of minor historical markers you can see along the side of the road while driving through the back roads of Languedoc-Roussillon....

  • Église de Saint Martí, Ix (Hix -...

    It is one of the best examples of a XII century roman-barroque style church. Built with stones cut in the form of parallelepiped rectangular, the church has nicely decorated windows. With arcs on small columns. The quiet graveyard around the church makes nice pictures. And if you are not into graveyards, the small village of Hix is worth stopping...

  • visit a small mountain village

    Just go of the main road and you will reach small villages. In the mountains the churches have some strange towers. It looks like they are still building it.
