We were drawn in by the sound of organ music, and sat listening for a long while. The church, like many churches in France, is in serious need of renovation both inside and outside, but there are some nice stained glass windows. Worth a look.

This little city reminded me of the theme park in Holland 'de Efteling'. A very romantic place to visit. You can hear the bird and walk around the river. In the city there nice cafe's for some beverages and nice French meals.
