F_Bugarach_Kirche©Hilke Maunder.In Bugarach, the Maya calendar stated, you will be able to survive the end of the world. Even though things did not happen as predicted in 2012, the small village in the Aude mountains ist well worth a visit. Not only for a hike up the legendary Pech de Bugarach, were UFOs have been observed landing by locals and foreigners, but also for the new gallery opened in May by Diana Liljelund, a Finnish lady and trained architect.

Ein Gedanke zu “A Great Gallery In Quaint Bugarach

  1. Liebe Hilke, vielen Dank für den interessanten Tipp. Bugarach ist wirklich ein besonderer, fast mystisch wirkender Ort, mit dem Pech de Bugarach. Ich hatte das Vergnügen den Berg bis zum Plateau erwandern zu dürfen und wurde bei
    sommerlichen Wetter mit einer traumhaften Aussicht auf die Pyrenäen belohnt. Claudine
