Date of visit: May 12, 2013, around 4:00 p.m.

It’s been a little while since I’ve updated this series, but the tour of beautiful villages continues.

May 12, Monflanquin, the fifth location, is half an hour or so from Montpasieu. Belves, Monpazier and Monflanquin are very close to each other.

And as I mentioned the other day, this village is also one of the bastides.

According to this book, the city’s history is first confirmed in the 12th century and, like all bastides, it came to England in the 13th century.

Now we arrive in town. We had a hard time finding a parking space, but we found an open space behind the church near the top of the village on the hill.

We parked our car there and started sightseeing.

But there was a big square in front of the church, so we could have been here (laughs).

So we decided to go inside the church that was right in front of us first. The outside is a nice design that gives a sense of historical style. Scale is quite large.

Inside, the Gothic type is rare for a beautiful village.

Afterwards, we strolled around the central square of the village, which is almost adjacent to this church.

It was beautiful, but it was hard to take pictures because there were so many people parking on the street.

It may have been a bit of a frustrating visit.

Finally, take in the surrounding scenery from this small hill, then get back in the car and head to the next village.

There’s still time for dusk, so I’ll be there.
