Château de Crussol

Trip to Ardèche: Day 1 - a month ago, Blandine and I took a three-day trip to the département of Ardèche. This is a beautiful district chock-full of spectacular scenery, just a couple of hours drive from her pad in Lyon. It's further down south in the Rhône-Alps région, to which Lyon too belongs. The first stop on the trip was the castle of Crussol (Château de Crussol). This is a 13th Century castle which was attacked in the religious wars of 16th Century and finally destroyed in the 17th Century. But the ruins are still pretty spectacular...
