Collanges la Rouge

We visited Collanges la Rouge yesterday.
It's a beautiful little village about 40 mins drive from our house in Correze
Once a well known halt on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrim route, it became known as the "Town Of 25 Towers". Dating from the XVI century, most of its buildings are constructed from deep red sandstone.

Until 1730, it remained entirely independant from the French Crown.
Collonges la Rouge has now survives mainly on tourism and agriculture. Absolutely brilliant from a photographic point of view.

Planning A Trip To Jersey City?

One place I have always wanted to visit is Jersey City. Take a look at and you will see why. On this well designed site one can gain a great insight into what to expect on your arrival at Jersey City.

A nice little preamble from Mayor Healy then onto the well documented headings…..Plan A Trip, Transportation, Accommodation, Maps and Things To Do. The various sections are worth a visit just for the interesting information to be found there.

Destination: Jersey City uses flash on their page headings but do slow down loading speeds to any noticeable extent. One minor “niggle” with the Jersey City Site is that it does not cater for the smaller monitor resulting in the need for horizontal scrolling.
