Ethereally French...

 While in Tournon France, I have to tell you that this space really filled my senses... 
it was like being in a sanctuary.

Catherine de Medici Queen of France 1519-1589, came here to

Le Château de Roussillon

in Tournon to escape the plague.

The chateau was built by the the Cardinal François de Tournon.  The design was actually Italian in style with the plans drawn by Sebastiano Serlio, one of the greatest masters of the time.
