http://www.tourisme-monesties.fr/?lang=en – Monesties SW France is one of the most beautiful villages in France !
Shaped like the shell of a snail, the construction of the village started in the 10th century around the church of St Peter, a small romanesque building transformed in 1550 into a group of buildings in the Southern French Gothic style. With its mediaeval architecture and picturesque lanes and the thread of history through the centuries, Monestiés offers the curious visitor a peaceful and interesting stop. In fact after discovering the village, the banks of the Cerou river welcome you for a tranquil stroll along the riverbank. Note : a botanical route extends the length of the riverbank where you will discover the local flora and fauna.
