Day 25 Lectoure, France

Statistics: distance walked: 3.5 miles/5.6 km, steps: 7,458, elevation climbed: 130 feet

It's a day off from walking. We all jump in the small rental car and drive to La Romieu. La Romieu is a “Plus Beaux Villages de France.” This is a designation given to the most beautiful towns and villages in France. I highly recommend if you're going to France Google “Plus Beaux Villages de France” and plan your vacation around those villages, you will not be disappointed.

La Romieu is a charming village with double steeple towers. it has a small cloister. Village has a history of cats. In the midieval times, the cats saved the village by eating the rats with the plague. The Town square has many cat statues on the buildings to honor the cats.

We just happen to be in the town for veterans honoring
The town’s fallen veterans. In France, war memorials honor In fallen from World War One. There's a second war memorial honoring the resistance fighters from World War II.

We drive to two more villages-Castelnau-sur L’Auvignon and Fleurance. Neither of them is really worth visiting again

We are all tired and retire early for the night.
