Beautiful Marketplace in Fanjeaux.
Photo of the Week July 16 2001
The village of Fanjeaux is full of pleasant surprises
Its well worth taking the road from Carcassonne to Fanjeaux and on to Mirepoix. The views are stupendous with vineyards, then rolling fields of sunflowers, corn, wheat, with sightings of distant snow topped Pyrenees, and the glorious wide open Aude valley with the Montagne Noire to the North,
Fanjeaux is a lovely village, well worth discovering - visit where Dominic preached and saved Cathar women from the flames, and this lovely medieval market place.
