Date of visit: May 13, 2013, around 7:00 p.m.

On May 13, we visited seven beautiful villages in Lautrec. This was the most visits per day in this beautiful tour.

When you think of Lautrec, yes, you think of the painter Toulouse Lautrec.

Actually, it has a lot to do with that. Toulouse-Lautrec was born into a famous family, the Counts of Toulouse, and the name “Lautrec” originated from the Counts.

Well, it was already 7 pm when we arrived at Lautrec, but it was still this weather and this light.

I’m very interested in the windmills on the hill.

It was very difficult to find a parking lot in this village, but we managed to find a space to park on the street. There were no parking meters in the village.

As expected, this village is also a typical medieval bastide.

While taking photos, we headed for the windmill hill we had seen just before arriving at the village.

I’ve seen many beautiful villages, but this may be the first time I’ve seen a windmill like this one.

We also saw the cross at the top of the hill.

Maybe because it was already late in the evening, few shops were open and there was not much to see in the city. There might have been some sightseeing spots related to Toulouse-Lautrec if I had checked more properly.

So much for sightseeing on the 13th. We stayed overnight in Castres this day.
