Lectoure to Condom

2nd April 2022

We visited the magnificent 14th century Collégiale St. Pierre,
with its cloister and a tower, where two friendly people gave
us a lift to Condom, as we had tarried too long! -

Where two ways meet


After getting our own breakfast, we set off under cloudy skies into a bitterly cold wind towards Marsolan, and then on to the magnificent Collegiale Saint-Pierre in La Romieu. An unusual feature was that it was possible to see the outside of the vaulted roof, and we spent some time admiring the buildings and church. Romieu is also a joining point for the Voie de Rocamadour, and for its cats, who apparently saved the town in the middle ages.
While searching for a coffee, we came across Philip and Corinne, who we had met in the asparagus restaurant, and had a coffee together. They offered us a lift back to Condom, and so we walked with them to Castel sur l'Auvignon, a centre of the French Resistance in the second world war and on to Sainte-Germaine de Baradieu church, where they had left their car.
They then drove us to their lovely Gite and Auberge, "Au Plaisir d'Etape-Gîte" (see link) which unfortunately we didn't stay at because we had booked an airBnB in the town.
The airBnB was a delightful room off an enclosed courtyard with delightful hosts, and we rounded off the day by looking around the town with its "Three Musketeers" statue and eating pizza in the only restaurant open late at night.

SORRY, STILL
