The village of Conques in the Midi Pyrenees region of France is even more beautiful than I expected. The architecture is fabulous and steeped in history, the abbey itself being a Unesco world heritage site. The day I visited last week was hot and sunny and the lovely flowers throughout the village set it off perfectly. One word of advice, the village is located on a steep hillside but parking is available on either side of the village further down the hill which was beneficial to my elderly parents. Some of the pathways are uneven in places so visitors with limited mobility may require assistance. Definitely worth a visit by old and young alike and all photography enthusiasts.
