Doorway; Monpazier

Monpazier is “one of the most beautiful villages in France”, and today’s painting only gives a glimpse. One of the most intact Bastide towns, it was established in 1284 by King Edward I of England, and I don’t think they’ve rearranged a stone since. The beautiful sandstone buildings surround a central square, and the medieval village is in turn surrounded by castle-like fortifications, all of which look out over stunning wooded valleys. The day we visited they had their flower market in the square. It was almost too much for the senses; that much beauty in one place at one time!
