Below: Easter, 2011! The town of Montcuq (pronounced the same as mon cul = “my ass”) celebrated by holding a large Easter market in the main street. We stopped by on our way out of town.

Below: The famous topiary cross near Montlauzun.

Below: The hilltop medieval town of Lauzerte, where we spent the night.

Below: Our gîte “Les Figuiers” in Lauzerte. This was one of the best gîte experiences – 1€ beers, delicious meals, a private room, and some Canadians to talk to over dinner. The fantastic innkeepers, a husband and wife couple, welcome each pilgrim with a cold drink.

Below: The main square in Lauzerte. Note how the corner of the pavement has been “curled up” (near the church) – some kind of public art project, I think.

Below: View of the valley from Lauzerte’s fantastic hilltop vantage point.
