We headed into the nearby town of Troyes. We many French towns we are usually disappointed with however this was an exception. It was a lovely town to wander around with many leaning half-timbered houses with cobbled streets, numerous impressive churches and lovely squares.

The Cathedral of St Pierre and St Paul was an impressive Gothic cathedral with some wonderful stained glass windows. We also visited the Apothecaries a richly decorated 16th century pharmacy which had been part of the old hospital. It had rows of painted wooden ‘silenes’ boxes dating from the 18th century along with other pharmaceutical jars etc.

The half-timbered buildings were also fascinating leaning in on one another across narrow cobbled alleys. For a French town they were in fairly good state of repair.

Returning to base we had thoroughly enjoyed our day in Troyes.
