The UNESCO World heritage site of Mont Louis, which is part of a group of sites called the fortifications of Vauban- all forts from the late 1600s.
This was up in the Pyrenees and the sky really was that blue! 🙂 It was cold up there, about 2C. (ok… cold for me!)
Now there are lots of snow sport places up there, but I can only imagine how forlorn and lonely it must have been in the day for the soldiers. It is on the top of a mountain on what used to be the French Frontier with spain.
I simply cannot imagine what it must have been like to be posted here.
The whole town is part of the fortress.
