An Evening Walk In Saint-Savin

A few photos from a short evening walk in our home village of Saint-Savin. The village dates from Roman times, with a spectacular church built in the 10th century or perhaps earlier, on the ruins of one burned by the Vikings in 841. It is probable that the foundations are Roman and date to the 4th century. There are also some half-timbered houses dating to the 15th century. Pyrenees Cycling lodge having being built in 1972 is a mere whippersnapper.
