Roquebrune village - 3

It's hard to know where to begin in showing you this beautiful village. Everywhere you look there is beauty and most of all age - you can feel the history in the very stones of this village. Here you see Rue Moncollet - yes, it really is a street that cuts through the rock.

Rue Moncollet is the oldest street in the village and dates back to the 10th century. It's a long narrow street with stepped passageways and is filled with houses from the Middle Ages, many with barred windows.

We have walked just a few metres from the square we were in yesterday.

  2. What a fascinating place this turned out to be. So common and ordinary to you and so quaint and different to me.

    Do you ever watch the Dog Whisperer? I love that show.

  9. Oh, do take us down that street! Using a phrase from my caving days.....Does it go? It looks to me like it ends with a door.
