France Chapelle des Pelotes - May '16

Recommended Posts

Chapelle des Pelotes


Visited this one with @AndyK! and @Jamie_P. First location on our long and tiring France trip which involved around 38 hours of driving and forcing our eyes open, along with 7 hours of sleeping, Win!

This chapel was part of an old seminary, which also looked great,but we didn't visit that part unfortunately. This chapel was well worth the trip however, kept us occupied for a good couple of hours before heading to the next. 

Upon arriving we parked up in the sort of small village where you immediately draw attention to yourself, because you're driving around in the only English vehicle for miles :D 
We walked up to our decided entry point into the grounds which was not too difficult, although it required some mission impossible style rolling to avoid the eagle eyes of the locals :) A car drove past whilst one of us were getting into the grounds, stopped and began to reverse, but within the short time between stopping and reversing, we were straight out of sight, danger roll win!


Anyway, enough rambling..

























Cheers :thumb

You do take a good pic SM :) This is just stunning, like the framing. Worth the rolling to get in I reckon :thumb

      Was  reminded that I didn't posted anything yet so, here's a post of a recent visit to this mine. This one is not the safest one :-) . Some parts are  already collapsed.
      There are several levels but the lower did we skip. Heard that the air quality is not the best there and we didn't bring the rope ladder .
      Was nice  to explore. Hope you enjoy looking at this.
