ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VIII): Conques || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VIII): Conques

In this last post about Midi-Pyrénées, I wanna explain you my mid-day trip to Conques, before leaving home. When we made it to Conques, a woman indicated us where to park the car (3€). There is limited capacity, so they have everything well planned in order to optimise the space. It was raining and the temperatures … More ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VIII): Conques || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VIII): Conques

ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VII): Rocamadour || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VII): Rocamadour

Following the last blog post about Saint-Cirq-Lapopie… In the afternoon, we drove to the famous pilgrimage town of Rocamadour. Maybe you’ve heard about it before since it’s known for being hanging on a steep. We parked for free on a terrace, even though we had to climb many steps to reach the town. You can … More ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VII): Rocamadour || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VII): Rocamadour

ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VI): Saint-Cirq-Lapopie || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VI): Saint-Cirq-Lapopie

The next day we headed to Saint-Cirq-Lapopie. It’s for sure a must-see in Midi-Pyrénées! I couldn’t have imagined it was so touristy. When we arrived, we had to choose a car park of 4 (paying, of course). If you can, choose the closest ones to the town. The others are a bit far and you … More ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VI): Saint-Cirq-Lapopie || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (VI): Saint-Cirq-Lapopie

ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (V): Najac || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (V): Najac

The last stop of that day was Najac, another little charming village (well, they are them all!). The town itself is basically one long street: from the top, where there’s the car park, to the castle, which can be seen far away in the middle of the street. This is the most famous view of … More ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (V): Najac || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (V): Najac

ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (IV): Cordes-sur-Ciel || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (IV): Cordes-sur-Ciel

After visiting Albi, we drove about half an hour to our next destination: Cordes-sur-Ciel. It’s a small and medieval town, and people say it’s the most charming one in France. It’s named like this since when there’s fog, the highest part of the village raises above the clouds. Prepare your legs because there are a … More ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (IV): Cordes-sur-Ciel || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (IV): Cordes-sur-Ciel

ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (III): Albi || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (III): Albi

Albi is 1h from Toulouse and it’s another important town in Midi-Pyrénées. We didn’t have enough time to visit in its whole since we only stayed half a day. However, we went to the most iconic places. For a quick visit, I’d recommend: Pont du 22 Août 1944 and Pont Vieux: these are the two … More ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (III): Albi || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (III): Albi

ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (II): Toulouse || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (II): Toulouse

I couldn’t go to Midi-Pyrénées and not visit Toulouse, as known as “ville rose” due to its antique buildings brick’s colour. It’s been a lot since I was in France and I missed its streets, its architecture, its elegance… We had a day and a half to visit the city, so we toured the tourists’ … More ROAD TRIP THROUGH MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (II): Toulouse || RUTA EN COCHE POR MIDI-PYRÉNÉES (II): Toulouse
