Our village church.

Walk out our front door, look to the right and voilĂ ! There it is!

Our neighbor, the village historian, told us that it was built in the 12th century, destroyed in the 14th and re-built in the late 14th/early 15th century. You can see evidence the old rampart walls on one side.
I love living in the midst of all this history! Pin It

What a gorgeous sky!

I somehow don't get that into the distant history aspect of living here, but am becoming increasingly fascinated by the beginnings of "modern" Rodez -- from the late 1800s on. I wish I had more time to research it.

The sky has been exceptionally blue lately.
We're surrounded by all the Roman and Cathar history around here. It is really amazing!
