The cemetery on the way into town, church in background.
The church is the physical, and perhaps the cultural, centre of the commune with its spire sticking up and visible from just about everywhere. Surrounding the church is a kind of circle road, with all the other roads radiating out from it.
Yesterday we drove into town for a brief look around. By then it was noon so after a delicious 3 course lunch we began to wander around the town. It seemed odd that all the stores were closed. Sure it was Thursday in October and tourist season was winding down but you'd think some would still be open. After a while we realized that all the stores and businesses close from 1-3 for lunch. How civilized!
