Tuesday, July 25th, 2023: Today’s port of call is Cadillac and touring The Castle of Roquetaillade, an amazingly preserved masterpiece of medieval military architecture. The name Roquetaillade means “carved out of rock” describing its natural defensive site. The castle was initially built in the 10th century by Charlemagne as his army advanced toward the Pyrenees. It was then rebuilt in the 14th century by the noble family who still lives there today after 700 years. As we made our way through the town, we saw old city fortifications as well as the L’Église de Cadillac, a stunning 15th- century baroque style church. After our lovely dinner aboard the ship, we lounged on the deck enjoying and reminiscing about the day.
