Village of the Templars

October 21, 2015

 

In the Valle di Alzon, in France we came upon a fortified town known as La Couvertoirade, this is an antique seat of the Knights Templar, and was founded in 1439. This fortification can be found in the middle of a vast and deserted landscape, which allowed their numbers to group in somewhat safe surrounds. Mostly made up of warrior monks this group were hospitaliers, caring for the medical needs of the population ravaged during the 100 years war. The village is still inhabited and still demonstrates the lives that have been lived through those times.
