France is a country full of charming corners. Its cities have style and we love Paris or Bordeaux, but beyond them it is possible find amazing French villages that will take your breath away. Sometimes you have to get away from the cities to find the most amazing places with the most personality.
En France there are many beautiful towns, but today we are going to talk about five of them. If you like these types of visits, take note of all of them because each one has something interesting to offer. So enjoy the new visiting points that you have to score in France.
This town is located in the Lot department and has many visits, being behind Mont Saint-Michel. In this area there was already human presence in the Upper Paleolithic, since it has the Cueva de las Maravillas, a cave with prehistoric cave paintings. It is a city that managed to divert the Camino de Santiago and that today is very touristy. One of the main visits in this area is the castle, from which you can see the cliffs and the views of the rest of the town. To go down to see the town you can go by the Camino de la Cruz or by an underground funicular. The XNUMXth century Puerta de San Marcial gives way to the sanctuaries and the beautiful sanctuary square. Also not to be missed is the church of San Amador from the XNUMXth century.
This place, which was already populated in the XNUMXth century BC, offers an incredible citadel that leaves no one indifferent. This medieval citadel located in the southeast offers us a great attraction. It is better to visit it in low season so as not to expose yourself to excess tourism. The citadel has more than three kilometers of walls with an exterior enclosure and an interior one and among them the lizas, a flat terrain that surrounds the citadel. In the citadel there are many towers, gates such as the Narbonne Gate, which is usually the entrance gate, and even the castle. We should also see the Basilica of Saint-Nazaire, with some Romanesque elements but an almost totally Gothic look.
This town is located on the Camino de Santiago in the south of France. In Conques you have to enjoy a good walk through its streets, seeing the architecture of its houses, with timber framing and slate on the roof. The great monument of the town is the Romanesque style Abbey of Conques in which the Portico of the Final Judgment stands out. In it you can also see the Treasury Museum with reliquaries. Not to be missed are the places where the artisans work and the small shops in the village.
This is considered the most beautiful village in Alsace. It has a peculiar circular layout for commercial purposes. About five kilometers away there is a viewpoint to appreciate this shape of the town. You have to visit the Rue du Rempant because it is the street where we can see the true essence of the town's architecture. Here is also the most photographed area of the city, the Le Pigeonnier house that is on the corner and separates two streets. We must also see the Place du Chateau, the most important square in the village with the beautiful Fontana de Saint Leon in the center.
This is another one of those charming towns that you should not miss. If you enter through the Rue Grande you find the Place de la Grande Fontaine which was the old market square. Behind it is the Church Square, with the Church of the conversion of Saint Paul. In the south there is a viewpoint located over the cemetery, the place that offers the best views of the entire town.
