On the Way

On the way from Carcassonne, where we had spent the day, to our apartment in St. Andre we diverted to Lagrasse, which is included in the list of Les plus beaux villages de France.  Not to be confused with Grasse, Lagrasse is 19 mi southeast of Carcassonne in the valley of the River Orbieu. It is nestled in among the foot hills of the Pyrenees that are part of the  Corbières wine region.

    1. Much photographed spot too – if you google Lagrasse that’s the image you will see. I didn’t realize that at the time of course, but it’s an obvious vantage point of a beautiful scene. Thanks, Tina.

  1. Hi Lynne, I was awestruck by this picture. Like many of your other posts, I feel, experience a sense of intrigue in the history of the sites you have photographed. Thanks a bunch for sharing them.
