St Martin du Canigou
abbey of St Martin du Canigou is perched on a small plâteau on the
side of the Canigou, one of the outer peaks of the Pyrenees. Unlike the
Château de Peyrepertuse, the abbey is a good half an hour's drudge
up a steep slope from the town below. Although it was nevertheless rather
crowded, there did at least seem to be a better class of tourist.
having with us enough money to be able take the guided tour made us feel
slightly less irritated that it appeared to be shut .
