St Martin du Canigou

The 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.

Not having with us enough money to be able take the guided tour made us feel slightly less irritated that it appeared to be shut .
