Touring Tours

In tours, we again drove for a very long time before we found parking. When we did, we started our walk, and ended up seeing St Martin Basilica. This basilica was pretty close to being completely ruined. It was still easy to see how beautiful and massive it would have been at one point. One tower of the original basilica is now a part of a building on the other side of the street.

The town itself has a lot of really cool things to see. Just walking along random streets, you can find the strangest things. We found what I suspect was the place where Joan of Arc either was born or died (I can't read French). We also found a very pretty little church.

We walked to the Hotel Gouin. It's supposed to be a very nice building. While we were there, though, the building was under construction, so all we could see was a big picture over the front of the building.

After that disappointment, we made our way to the cathedral. It was absolutely stunning. The exterior just looked so cool, and the interior was so peaceful and simple.
