Lovely St. Paul de Vence

Second stop for this day (April 11) is the quaint and famous village of St. Paul de Vence.

16th and 17th century buildings are well preserved in this village.
Art shops, galleries and elegant boutiques makes this tiny village a favorite among tourists.

The place de la Grande Fontaine.
Redesigned in the 17th and again in the 19th century, this square has always been the busiest spot in the village. From dawn until dusk villagers would come to fetch water, donkeys and mules would drink, and washerwomen would scrub and beat their laundry in the washhouse.

Medieval walls encircle narrow streets and capture the heritage of more than a thousand years.

And then authentic French macaroons. Yummy!
