Monpazier-revisited

For a change no market and very few visitors which gave us the chance to enjoy the gorgeous building of the 13th century that surround the square.

DSCN0734A typical bastides town set out in straight lines is more than 700 years old.
It is also the birthplace of Jean Galmot, journalist, writer and Member of Parliament who was disgraced and then assassinated by his political rivals at the beginning of the 20th century. I do not think that our political parties would go that far in eliminating the opposition on the run up to the General Election on the 7th May!
