Pérouges is a typical village of the Middle Age located on top of a hill at about 35km of Lyon. A lot of efforts have been made to preserve its medieval character and all the historic buildings have been restored. It's very charming.
Perouge , a medieval walled village established in 11th century (need to verify year). Now it has a population of 90, most of them are in tourist industry. In a gift store, we saw a photo of President and Mrs. Clinton during their visit there.
More photos in travelogue, text later, 2002-May-04.
Please, please, visit Perouges in the dusk; 20 km. from Lyon. These medieval small village remains as in the XVI century.
And you would find nice menus (including frogs which are the speciality) in 'Auberge du Coq'.
