Colourful tourist trap.
Sangria time in Collioure
04/08/2012, Villefranche, France
Easter provided the opportunity to do a bit of sightseeing. We drove into the foothills of the snow covered Pyrenees to a little medieval village called Villefranche de Confluent. Not only was it picturesque, and had the best Michelin guide restaurant called Auberge St Paul, but there was a Festival of the Giants underway. Different teams paraded their giant figures through the passageways, dancing and playing music. The atmosphere was tremendous. While Ros, Myra and John flagged after the superb lunch and 2 glasses of Catalan wine and sheltered from the cool wind in the Renault Kangoo, Garth and Rick explored the nearby limestone caves which they said were the best they had seen.
