Gordes Street

Again, just like with Saint Rémy-de-Provence, my friends and I ended up in Gordes because I had seen a photo of this hilltop village somewhere sometime that stopped me in my tracks.

Gordes is 38 km east of Avignon. The houses are built in a spiral circling the hill on which the village is set.


Hilltop settings provided medieval villages like Gordes with a natural defense against invaders. It provides tourists like me with photo-ops galore.

Plus, there is that spectacular view.
