    The museum tempts you in, as you walk past its ruined garden walls and see a glimpse of medieval garden. Make your way up the stairs to the entry where you will meet the curator and pay your 4 euros entry. The curator of the museum is passionate about it, and will happily chat to you about the place. It is very much a mixed bag of items donated by the populace of the village. Sadly the museum is in desperate need of some funding to do restoration work and re-framing of its marvellous documents some of which date to the 12th century, and many of which are important historical documents and treaties about the city itself.

    The entry fee is well and truly worth it for the view from the tower... Standing there you can see 360 degrees around you to the rolling landscapes of france, over the tiled roofs of the town. Stunning.

    The speciality of Perouges is its Galette au Sucre. To the first glance you could be forgiven for thinking someone is selling plain pizzas, and indeed they are made with a yeast dough like a pizza. But instead of cheese and savoury toppings, this beautifully simple galette is sprinkled with sugar and nuts of butter before baking. The pastry itself is sweetened and also has lemon zest in it, and the final product is a scrumptious pastry whose melt in the mouth texture will have you queuing up for more.
