Looking at the mythical mount Andaon

Photo prise au pied du mont Andaon. Ce rocher accueillit les religieux de l'abbaye Saint André et devint, plus tard, un bastion du royaume de France, guettant les inconnus et les ennemis du haut de ses tours imposantes.
On voit une petite partie des remparts qui regardent en direction du nord-est. C'est en ce lieu mythique que s'établit le fort Saint André. Chaque pierre fait encore écho de l'histoire qui se déroula durant de longs siècles sur cette falaise imprenable et légendaire, ceinte de murs épais et de tours, aujourd'hui, abandonnées.

Photo catch at the foot of the mount Andaon. This rock accomodated the monks of the abbey Saint Andre and became, later, a bastion of the kingdom of France, watching for the unknown ones and the enemies from the top of its imposing towers.
We can see a small part of the ramparts which look in direction of the North-East. It's in this mythical place that the fort Saint Andre is established. Each stone still makes echo of the history who proceeded during some long centuries on this "imprenable" and legendary cliff, surrounded of stong walls and towers, today, given up.
