This picture was taken in Angles sur l'Anglin, considered to be one of the most beautiful villages of France. The name angles sur l'Anglin is thought to derive from the same Germanic tribe that also gave its name to England. It is a medieval village with a good strategic position perched on top of a hill. However there were people in the area well before that time, and prehistoric remains have been found.
The archway above leads to cellars beneath, which were used for storing salt traded at the medieval fairs, and also for smuggled salt.
