Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert

Picture time! I’ll debrief you on my little adventure before we start. On Friday, I took a little excursion to a small town called Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert. The population of this city is around 200, but the place is beautiful. When I arrived, I think I forgot all my jitters and, for that one glorious moment, I didn’t want to come back to the States.

A small town, but with lots of history. During the Protestant Reformation, this was a Catholic town. As a matter of fact, the city was filled with abbeys and monasteries. Yet, after many issues at this time in Europe, the Protestants came to this city and destroyed the architecture. There’s a small museum that holds some of the ruins, but you can still see the beauty and delicacy in the building structures.

Note that I will also be uploading a full album for all my adventures to my Facebook page, so go ahead and like it if you haven’t already!

Per usual, feedback would be appreciated!
