Roquebrune village at night - rue Moncollet


We are in rue Moncollet, the oldest street in the medieval village of Roquebrune. You can see this same shot taken in daylight by clicking on the link. You can also read about 'le poudinge' - the tertiary rock on which the village is built.

Walking around Roquebrune village at night is even more magical than during the day - you also never know who you might meet. Come back tomorrow and see who we met in this particular street.

  1. Ah, je revis une partie de ma jeunesse a travers votre site. J'adore Roquebrune, bien que je ne l'aie pas vu depuis "une eternite."

  2. I bet this is a great place to visit and explore. Do people still live in there or is it a museum?

  7. ;-) clearly the phrase "accessible" was not in the mediaeval dictionary. Good subject for a night walk, J.

  11. Jim - Absolutely people live in Roquebrune village - and in this very street. Roquebrune is very much a lived-in village.
