Rocks to rocks

A previous G&N blog post “Glanum Glorious Views” covers much of the history of this site. The following post is a short overview only as an excuse to show off a few new photos. The main street in Glanum is pictured above….Continue reading here for details on this important settlement that began with Gallic inhabitants in the 7th Century BC and was occupied until the Romans were forced out by the Franks in 260AD. Glanum is a “Must Visit” site if you are staying in or near St Remy de Provence.
