We went to Foix today: county town of the Ariège, twinned with Ripon, not that anyone takes any notice of that.
It has a castle- a fairy tale castle if you’re that way out, or the scene of medieval jousting and chivalrous knights if you prefer. It’s a Proper Castle, anyway.
We always enjoy pottering down the city’s narrow little streets, and today these are what we found there…..
…and later, in the mediaeval abbey church of Saint Volusien…….
……these jolly creatures were marching above us, near the high altar.
