Penne, Aveyron

Main street of Penne, Aveyron

You can actually get a small car into the old part of the village, though you're better off parking in the village square at the bottom of the hill, as you'd have to reverse out again.

The small picture shows the ruins of the ancient fort of Penne, clinging to a rock above the gorge of the Aveyron River. Legend has it that some early lords who occupied this site threw unwelcome visitors from the keep, into the river several hundred feet below.
