Jean Moulin in Ménerbes, Vaucluse (84)

It's good that a garden has been dedicated to Résistance hero Jean Moulin in the village of Ménerbes itself. I can't say I understand the attraction of the village though: crowds of tourists flock here, even coaches, and it's quite crowded wandering around the ancient streets. But then, it's been named one of the most beautiful villages in France, and oh, Peter Mayle (the guy largely responsible for parts of Provence now having such tourist appeal) stayed here once. No, I've never read any of his books, and definitely never will.
