The Occitan tradition, which involves the culture and the Roman language of the same name spoken in the south of France, is an indissoluble mark of local expressions, such as troubadours, regional instruments, music, literature, crafts, and of course, gastronomy. The southern flavors are present in the Lou Tarnès, a delicious dessert with lime dough, which surrounds a filling of apples braised with honey and jelly of black grapes.
Former military warehouse, Cordes-sur-Ciel occupies the top of a hill in the Cérou valley in southern France. The small medieval town is cut by cobbled streets, like Raymond VII, its main road. In it, it is possible to admire houses of gothic faixada, like the house of the Grand Veneur. Considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in France, it organizes during the summer medieval festivals, famous for their characters dressed from head to toe with period clothes, as well as for music and juggling shows. The place also hides small museums and artists' ateliers.
