Today we visited the picturesque village of Conques. The town was orinally constructed between the 11th and 13th centuries and was made famous by religious pilgrims who came from far and wide to visit the Abbey of Saint Foy.

Had I been living during that time, I think I would have gladly made the treachorous journey to Saint Foy just so that I could stay in one of the storybook houses that cover the mountainside!


  1. Bonjour, Melanie. It sounds like you are having a wonderful time. I look forward to following your blog. ~Mrs. Gueterman

  2. Thank you so much, Mrs. G! I'm having a wonderful time and fully intend to keep up with this blog as best I can. I hope you've been doing really well :)

  3. Melanie, I am in the middle of another busy travel season. I'd rather be in France. Happy Feast Day! ~Mrs. G
