Tati, George and I went to the Saturday market at Pernes les Fontaines, a Gallo-Roman town known for its many fountains.
At the market there were incredible sights …and smells. My nose was twitching the whole time … Love the saucisson stalls.Pretty strawberries from CarpentrasBright red tomatoesAnd all sorts of green herbs And they reassured us that they also speak English and German And oh dearie me! I guess we have both the good and the well, not good things. And this guy had his paella ready to go!Surely being at Pernes les Fontaines, a town with over 40 fountains, we had to find at least one before leaving.
The first one we saw was a fountain covered with moss! Seriously – this is a fountain! We walked along the quieter streets and came across another in a public park. And this one by the original covered marketplace.And yet another this one along a residential street with pretty wisteria.We walked towards these very old walls – they were part of the original ramparts of this ancient townAnd then walked towards Eglise Notre Dame de Nazareth which dates from the 11th century.The old church has two sundial clocks on the wallsAnd Mummy thought I needed a blessing from the Virgin Mary.
