Summering in the South of France Take 3

Just a few pictures from a quick half day trip we took to a little village built into the side of a cliff. I learned all of the legends that come with the beautiful church that rests within the walls of the cliff. Inside of the church there are boats hanging from the ceiling in the chapel, sailors used to pray to the Lady of the church in times of crisis out at sea. Legend has it that she saved those men and they repaid her with the small replicas of their ships. The rugby team also prays to the Lady of the church so they have their own little alcove off to the side with a wall lined with their framed jerseys in which they offered to her. Every place I have visited on this trip has something to teach me, and I love learning all of it!
