A hot run across the Spanish border
Roads lined this plane trees in the Midi Pyrenees
And on to Carcassonne
Relic of the Cathar Dream
Survivor of the Cathar Wars.
Bastion of the past
Standing on the hill
Survivor of centuries
Weathered wall the keepers of secrets through the ages
The ancient citadel on the hill
It well hold its secrets to the sun sets over it for the last time.

I looove the Cathedral. I have a “thing” for them. I was brought up Catholic, although I do not practice any religion I still love visiting cathedrals to take in their beauty. I am so envious, your trip is amazing.
The stained glass in the citadel cathedral was breathtaking. The photos don’t do justice to them.
Photos never do, do they?
The whole wing was stained glass panels a photo could not hope to capture it
Have you ever been to St Chappelle in Paris? It is very small, but it is almost all stained glass. At least it looks like it when you are in it. The upstairs has access by a very tiny staircase. It is breathtaking.
No but it’s now on my list
Looks beautiful Mick.
Sure was. I’m slowly catching up on my blog just a couple of weeks and 4 countries behind lol
