“One of the most incredible attractions in the region, a UNESCO World Heritage site, La Roque St Christophe is a 1km long cliff, 80m high with 5 enormous galleries. Since troglodyte days, it has been a place of safe refuge. You get to see how the city was arranged and there are working replicas of the lifts which were needed to bring supplies up the cliff face.”

Church
“La vaste cathédrale Saint-Front, de style romano-byzantin, rappelle par son plan en croix grecque (rare en France) et ses cinq coupoles, la basilique Saint-Marc de Venise. Édifiée au 12e s., à l'emplacement d'une chapelle du 6e s., elle a beaucoup souffert des guerres de Religion, de la Fronde et de la Révolution. Paul Abadie entreprend sa restauration à la fin du 19e s., et., de l'église d'origine, il ne reste que le beau clocher roman. Pour la petite histoire, elle a servi de point d'origine architectural à la basilique du sacré coeur de Paris.”
