We initially set out to hitch a rid on the pods to the top of the Bastille to take in the views of Grenoble and the alps but they were out of order. We had to clamber up 3km of steep steps and ramps to get to the top but I think you will agree the views were worth it.
We have some lovely mountains in Wales but these are a rather special. Can't wait to head up on Saturday and frolic in the snow.
Grenoble looking particularly beautiful.
On the way back down from the Bastille we discovered the church of St. Laurent. It's a Romanesque church of the twelfth century. It has a sixth century crypt which makes it a unique archaeological site in France. It was also a Benedictine monastery at one point which was of huge interest to me as my dissertation was about monastic life.
After a day of walking we headed to La Fondue for a cheesy treat in the evening. I ate soooo much cheese. I don't want to see cheese again for a month.
