Angouleme, the french comic-strip capital

Stroll along the ramparts of French city Angoulême, where intricate murals and quirky cartoons brighten building façades. France is a comic-mad country, and Angoulême is the centre of the bande dessinée world, home to the glass-panelled National Comic Strip Centre and exuberant International Comics Festival.

About France

After having a walk along the 4th, 13th and 16th century ramparts, what about discovering the St Peter’s cathedral. Dating back to the 12th century, the building was modified several times. But this one stays a great example of the regional romanesque architecture and sculpture.

If you are fond of religious architecture, you will have a lot to visit and you may be spoiled for choice, between remains of abbeys such as the St Ausonne ruins, or other churches such as the St André’s one. In a totally different style, wander around the covered market. Its architecture of glass and iron echoes the Baltard Pavillon near Paris.

You can also admire the Town Hall, keeping some remains of the medieval castle built here before. Its crenellated towers remind of a fortress. Around Angoulême, nature lovers will be happy to find the Charente valley, which provides very pleasant footpathes and landscapes.
