6/46.- Bassin de Thau, Balaruc-le-Vieux


Slightly inland, the medieval village of Balaruc-le-Vieux covers a mountaintop with its church, castle and ramparts. Since the region has been exposed to many religious and other wars, many villages are fortified or built within circular walls. When, as is the case here, automobile traffic is banned from the centre, the visitor has the impression that time has stood still. Balaruc-le-Vieux, which has its annual medieval festival, now has its own Virtourist website.
