A WORD A WEEK CHALLENGE – OLD… castles

When you tell me “Old!” I think of the 11 326 “protected” castles in my country (There are more than 40 000 castles in France) and of course I think of some photos I took of a few castles. For example  I’ve taken a lot of shots of the Historic Fortified City of Carcassonne which is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

drapeau-francais-franceQuand vous me dites “Vieux!” Je pense aux 11 326  châteaux classés dans mon pays (Il y a plus de 40 000 châteaux en France) et bien sûr je pense à certaines photos que j’ai prises de quelques châteaux. Par exemple, j’ai pris beaucoup de photographies de la cité fortifiée de Carcassonne qui inscrit sur la liste de l’UNESCO des sites du patrimoine mondial de l’humanité.

  1. J’ai fait les vendanges dans les Corbières… j’ai eu la chance de visiter plusieurs vieux châteaux en ruine. Quel joli pays!

    • Et oui, dans ce coin-là, il y a pas mal de châteaux, certains en ruine, d’autres beaucoup moins.
      Faire les vendanges, c’est assez dur et il peut faire encore très chaud à cette période de l’année. Je gage que dans ton pays, il y a aussi quelques jolis coins mais peut-être moins de châteaux…
      A bientôt

  2. fabulous shots…all of them!

  3. Beautiful images. Thanks for a visually delightful trip through the castles.
