Millau

Millau has always been the crossroads between east and west and north and south.  It used to be notorious for traffic bottlenecks because the city lies in the Gorges du Tarn and vehicles had to struggle up and down the steep sides.  Now that the Millau bridge has been built, it takes just a few minutes to cross the gorge.

Millau is famous for tanning, particularly the making of gloves.  We saw quite a number of leather stores.  This is one of the shopping streets.

 It was much more fun to walk around downtown than drive through it like we did earlier in the afternoon.

Millau has many interesting narrow streets.
