” I think that we can reach the town by it’s foot and walk up there tomorrow” Ch 7 P 62.

Vernet-les-Bains is actually a good walk from the road up to the monastery but it is still possible.

“It’s about halfway up the mountains which protected it from all sorts of invaders. It was built just after the year 1000.Incredible – this little place carved into a rock.”

“but you will like the town below it just as much.It’s an old spa town.It’s really charming”

” I did like Les Bains, when we drove into it that afternoon.It was a large sand coloured rock village spread over one small peak.The great Pyrenees hung above it, shadowing all but its broadest lower streets,which stretched toward river valleys and the dry flat farms below.Dusty plane trees, cropped square around a series of dusty piazzas. provided no shade..”

“the predictable stone church ,haunted by swallows, at the towns summit, and see the the church tower floating in an enormous shadow of mountains”

Well this is Vernet Les Bains beyond any doubt. The dusty streets and piazzas, the church on the hill but not quite the described view looking down on farms.

Anyway lets have a first look at the monastery.

Monastery St Martin du Canigou
