I had a doctor's appointment in Villefranche this morning. I'd hoped to visit the Chapelle des Penitents Noir (Chapel of the Black Penitents) afterwards since it's about a half dozen steps from the doctor's office. Unfortunately, it was locked up tight. So I decided that as long as I was in the medieval part of town, I'd wander down to the church and its large square. I'll share a story about it in a later blog post, but today I wanted to show you the beautiful creche that is still in place inside. You know...before Christmas becomes too distant a memory!
