Angoulême

Angoulême is a strange mix of old and new, a bit like most other cities in France. In the sunshine, the old parts of the city are beautiful and the more modern, industrial additions intriguing. In the rain though, the city is much less inviting. Fortunately, the sun was out for most of the day and it was only the occasional shower we had to contend with.

The old city is built up on a plateau that overlooks the buildings below – the view is fantastic. Although Angoulême is said to be about the same size as Tours in terms of population, perhaps even a little smaller, this expanse makes it seem much, much bigger. As the exhibition was spread throughout different parts of the city, we were able to explore a little as we went along and see a few different areas of the town.
