La Fête du Citron (Music of the World) - the Steeple


Our last day at the Fête du Citron. There are always more photographs but it's time to move on - other joys of Menton await.

The beautiful steeple of the Basilica (see small photo) is something I can never resist snapping - so here's the orange and lemon version. You can see the full version HERE.

Tomorrow - we leave the world of citrus and we see ... the Kiss.

  3. I'm so glad you posted a photo of the real steeple next to the lemon and orange one, it allows us to see the beautiful job that was done copying the original. It's fantastic!

    I'm sorry I haven't commented for a while, I was frightfully busy with my slide show but I have to tell you I loved the humour of your medieval SMS and the very suggestive pose of "les bottes". Dear oh dear, just seeing the look on peoples' faces - priceless!!!

  5. I can't imagine they'd be able to top these creations next year.

    What do they do with the fruit when the festival is over?

  7. Thanks so much for the comments. Bibi, every year I say that and every year they top it. Always astounds me. I think next year's theme will be Cinema of the World. They sell the oranges and lemons that are in good enough condition - very cheap - they go for jams and wine.
