    Libourne, France

    Libourne, an adorable little town founded in 1270. It was market day so that is always a plus with the bustle of locals. A lovely gothic cathedral, St. Jean Baptist, the Musee des Beaux-Arts which is free to the public in the Hotel De Ville. All of this time, I thought that the hotel de ville was a real hotel and seeing this name over and over again was confusing. THEN I found out that hotel de ville translates to Town Hall, derp.Read more

    Libourne

    September 25, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    This morning we took a walking tour of Libourne with a local guide. Libourne is situated on the confluence of the Dordogne and Isle Rivers. In the Middle Ages regional wines were exported to England and the Netherlands from here. Libourne is a typical 13th century medieval town. Like most medieval towns it has a main square surrounded by arcades. Today the arcades are full of cafes and restaurants. Tuesday is market day so we were able to stroll through the market in Place Abel Surchamp as well as an indoor market. The Town Hall, also on the Square, was constructed in the 15th century but remodeled in the19th to make it look more medieval! It has a grand staircase with little gargoyles who are a bit naughty. There is a Museum of Fine Arts on the top floor of the town hall with classical and modern paintings. We enjoyed our stroll through Libourne.Read more
