Luz-St. Saveur

Luz-St.Saveur is largest town in the area near the village of Viscos where we stayed. We had some time on a very rainy day to explore it a bit, visiting the fortified church of St. Andrew, also known as the Templars Church because knights of the Hospitallers of Saint John of Jerusalem built walls around the church to protect the inhabitants. We also hiked up a steep hill at the edge of the town see the ruins of the Château Sainte-Marie, a castle from the 12th century, and made a quick stop at Pont du Napolean, a stone bridge built by Napolean III in the 1861. Click here for more about the town.
